Apologies to holidaymakers but I wish it would rain...

.... just a couple of overnight downpours would do. Its just getting hotter and hotter here at the coast, walking on some of the dirt roads is getting to be like walking on sand dunes and the bougainvillea are all coral coloured they have so much dust on them

There are clouds building up just inland but they are not getting here, just a couple of torrential overnight showers to freshen up the atmosphere and dampen down the roads would be great. Going to have to go to Monsoons again for the relief of that breeze off the sea....

So you won't be having a drink at Monsoon then - just there for the breeze?

Doff.....I understand the sentiment but will now have to blame you if there is more precipitation than sunshine when we land in 4 weeks time (albeit that we know we are pushing our luck with the onset of the rainy season)..... Anyway that reminds me, we have to find Monsoons this time......if the rain allows!

Well, the good thing is that for those that are coming to lie by the pool it is very, very hot and seems to be getting hotter by the day,

At least there is a cool breeze here at Monsoons, and Oh! Yes Bob the Pilsner barridi is helping as well

(I'd just like some rain - while all the holidaymakers are asleep would be fine)
