Today Grammeno has been invaded by swallows. They have come here on their way to North Africa. They have been amusing me all afternoon as they fly, very low, between the trees on the beach. Sometimes they all land and sit in the depressions in the sand. They are not very large when you see them up close or in the trees.

It is very windy today and the wind is blowing from the northwest. Even though the sun is still hot, the wind makes it very cold so most people abandoned the beach during the afternoon.

It is not cold enough to require the use of long trousers but certainly cold enough to need a decent top: preferably one with a hood. I’m sitting in the driver’s seat of the van from where I can see the beach and the sea. The sun is setting over the headland as I write.
Perhaps the swallows will go tomorrow if there’s a following wind?
