Lucky wind is something foreign to you if you're from PE. Just as well cos it can pomp in the tropics too! Some pretty unseasonal weather has klapped us for the last few days, but hey, at least the water's still 28C and the air temp hovers just above 30C.
And if the surfs a bit funky, well, then you fish. Which ain't a bad second option. For us, but maybe not the fish! Some serious trawling managed to hook us into some big GT's, a coupla small tuna, a decent wahoo and a barracuda, plus a few reef fish. Nothing goes to waste - the freezer is stocked and we can eat for the week! Cos we were running outta chow!
We'd originally only intended to stay for 2 weeks, but due to the iffy weather last week decided to say what the hell and stay another week. Nothing like knowing you're gonna be coming home to small summer onshore swell to make you determined to squeeze as much surf outta ya holiday as you can!
Charts are looking decent for the whole of next week, and supposedly so is the weather....but then that tends to change at the drop of a hat and we've given up checking the wind reports cos generally they don't seem to hold true.
So here's holding thumbs....
