    Very different this end of the Med this year.
    That weather that PeteM mentioned went through here a few days earlier.

    I have some yachtie friends in Mallorca who have been dodging strong winds and storms.
    But it does seem to be getting better.

    For us, even in our safe lagoon, we couldn't anchor in our usual spot.
    We had a party on three boats - ended up anchoring in front of the town beach behind the harbour wall.
    But spirits were high and all the visitors enjoyed themselves.
    Most importantly, there was no damage or injuries.

    Yup, we also experienced so far a somewhat different pattern, compared to the average of the last years.
    Actually we had neither very strong winds not storms (fingers crossed, touch wood, etc.), but just by chance, so to speak.
    In fact, Sep weather has been rather unstable also in our neck of the woods, and sometimes we heard of heavy storms at just a few kms from CF, along the Sardinian coast, and also inland.
    Oh, well. A rainy day onboard is still much better than a sunny day at the office, I reckon!

    I can only add that I just crossed to Porquerolles (I know, again) and the sea was dead calm without a breath of wind. The kind of conditions where you can park anywhere just like a pro
    Having lunch now, after which we will have a short dog walk, a nice nap followed by an epic dog walk then dinner. It must be paradise

    Of course we do. Well, I do, anyway.
    Since myself and swmbo abandoned the rat race, whenever Med boating is not as nice as in the late spring-mid autumn timeframe, we have lived (in no particular order) in the following places:
    California
    Florida
    Alaska
    Canada
    New Zealand
    Australia
    Japan

    And when I say "lived", I actually mean it - i.e. not as tourists, but using home exchange, at least for several weeks if not months, which is a radically different perspective.
    We liked a lot of places, and loved some of them. But you know what?
    Whenever someone ask me where I live, "in a small island in the very center of the Med" still is my most accurate answer

    Unfortunately the hell of paradise is boredom

    Lovely answers Here in the Welsh Med every weekend is a Lotto Lucky Dip. And even if you visit the same place, it's never the same twice, nor is getting there.

    MapisM, that is simply awesome. Nicely done!! Unfortunately I can neither abandon the rat race nor divest myself of the responsibilities of parenthood and their schooling. I mean boarding school has it's charms and as an "Old Boy" myself see the benefits but their mother holds sway and I dare not broach the subject more than a couple times a year.

    Someone once told me that you donít know a country until you are bored because no matter where you go the natives are bored
