www christmas

preparing christmas food

wind, waves and work at Christmas made the last days pass by faster than we thought and we lived some pretty normal days without Christmas feeling but some nice windy days, some small waves and some work in the end to not get bored at all. Even with some raindrops we had lots of fun, finally the wind was back and pushed some waves onto El Yaque Beach. Maybe not perfect for the Venezuelan Sunburn tourists and the Beach itself, but after a longer waiting period we didn´t feel mercy at all :-)

Last night I got a prompt comment about yesterday´s Blog entry … the weather seems to stabilize …. Etc…. Forget all about that ! Hard Rain hammered onto the Roof of our house, hardly let us sleep and a River found its way right behind the house… Impressive, but actually now the Island has had more than enough rain for the next couple of months… If it keeps on raining my hope is that next time it comes a bit more vertically, faded away by the wind…..

Waiting for the first small breeze...

After hard rain last week, finally the weather seems to stabilize, only the wind refuses to visit El Yaque, which hopefully changes soon !! At least we can enjoy warm caribbean nights and sweet sunsets again...

All rain is gone, sun has dried most..

The big rain is gone and sun has dried almost everything by now. question is, what about the wind ?? might it come now, finally ?? Some people are waiting already pretty long to hit the water... which at the venezuelan Mainland seems to be possible at the moment.. At most big lakes and some coasts the guys went sailing with their five meter sails every day.... so hopefully it all starts here as well asap !!!!!

Under, in or on the water…

Under the water actually is nice, when you´re scuba diving and not under huge black clowds, dropping massive rainshowers onto you. In the water is something I usually like as well, sitting on my surfboard, waiting for the next nice set of waves and not in my house. On the water sailing is something I really like, of course, but walking on the water in the house, garden, streets all the time ?

Yes, right, the rain hasn´t stopped yet and last night huge thunderstorms were hammering onto the Island of Margarita, rivers couldn´t hold the massive quantity of water and started to destroy houses, streets, taking cars, trees and whatever was in their way with them at almost the entire Island. Really bad night. At around midday the whole story was over, sun came out and cleaning could start. With the sun a small breeze found his way to El Yaque, good enough to forget the past hours a bit.

Actually the weather is not so unnormal as it seems. Rainy seasons sometimes stopps mid decembre instead of November and over night the weather changes completely to provide the wind and kitesurfers with wind and sun. If not, just put your little private submarine into the trunk and go for some shopping…….

yellow star....

my red skin says it´s true... sun was shining today... the whole day, without any rain.... might that be the big chage, might the real season start now ?? i guess none of you knows the right answer, do you ???? Actually i´m pretty busy at the moment and don´t really care about the weather.... but yes i would love to finally come back on the water.... even if work screams after me .....
