Seasons in the Sun - Tarifa's Wonderful Weather

The world spins, it travels round the sun and there goes another wonderful Autumn in Tarifa. We had every kind of weather this time - fog, rain, dead calm, glorious sun, offshore Levante wind and finally a high tide which flooded the lagoon due to the Force 7 Poniente (yes - that nice steady cross onshore wind that we get all winter ... usually).

So the choice of clothes, activities and location was done on the spur of the moment and often changed three times in one day. Still we had a wonderful time - exploring, cycling, wrestling with the beach tent, flying kites, watching sunsets, drinking shandy (!) and whilst the town was a bit quieter than usual, there were still plenty of bars / restaurants open and interesting people (and camper vans) to watch.

Oh, and the new building developments behind us on Los Lances are almost complete - so just a couple of cranes remain on the skyline and I guess, despite the credit crunch, we will start to see a few more new faces next year.

Here are a couple more piccies to keep the blog up to date - remember, you can find lots more pictures of Tarifa and its area by joining our Facebook - use this link or just search for 'Tarifa Studios' on Facebook.
