In the 1980s Chris Rea wrote the song Windy Town about my home town of Middlesbrough. At the moment it feels like the title of the song is suitable for Almerimar. No wonder the world champion windsurfer comes from here.

This autumn has been a pretty poor one here for weather. It feels like if it has not been raining it has been windy.

We were due to play golf with friends today and have decided to cancel due to the windy weather.

I really hope we get rid of this wet and windy weather soon.
