Wow what a fantastic week of weather we have just had with no wind to speak of and temps in the mid to high twenties. Visitors must clamouring to book their July holidays in St Francis for next year so impressed they must be with our mid-winter weather. Alas it is about to end and today promises to return to normal winter weather with a chilly westerly and a max temp of around 16 degrees C.

We couldn’t have chosen a better week to take a break as far as the weather goes for although I had to spend a couple of days the weather their too, was warm. Unfortunately the intended ‘service’ didn’t go quite as trouble free as it seems certain part of the fuel injection system have to be replaced so we will have to take a little more time off sometime in the future.
