I woke up this morning to see rain on the terrace for the first time in absolutely ages. It is the first real rain of the autumn season here in Almerimar.

The good news is that although it is cloudy today the weather looks to be ok for the Friday singles matches in the Woodsly Cup men versus ladies golf competition. The ladies are leading 7 1/2 to 3 1/2 so take a 4 point lead into Friday. However, as Mr President pointed out, there are a lot of single matches on Friday so the men are still in with a chance of retaining the trophy.
