Off to Lanzarote again for a little winter sunshine.  Costa Teguise this time which made a change.  We had a car for the whole ten days and although we didn't use it every day, we did manage to get out and see most of the island.

Piglet's paint

Managed to get a couple of coats on the little pig.

I have been trying to find out what my solar panel is doing but with all this sunny weather, its a bit difficult.  I use the inverter in the evening, drawing from the batteries, but by the time I get up in the morning, the regulator is flashing, indicating that it has charged them back up and has gone into 'float' mode. 
So it is providing ample power at the moment.  It will be interesting to see what it does as the days get shorter.

Bank Holiday Cruise

May bank Holiday was predictably chilly and windy but it did at least stay dry.  Only a short trip up to the GOBA moorings at Aldreth, but very pleasant all the same.  Highlights were the BBQ on Saturday, Murphy getting confused and jumping the wrong way off the boat at 11.30pm (wet dog) and my epic fail when trying to get back on my mooring in the gale on Monday.
