Another weekend is upon us

A fine time was had last night, we met up with Alan and Ant at Cueva Cascada and also with fellow Geordie Brian and his wife Maureen – some amazing work on lighting over at Cascada which has given me lots of new ideas for the future. We all had a great time – I spent some time talking to Ant who is Russian – he has one hell of a camera and it shows in his photos… and now I’m sitting here checking out Ebay for lighting.

We had hoped to get to the lake today for a baking but despite being 28c, it’s a little overcast. The lake is quite cool and so it really needs to be 30c+ to get the best out of it.

Scenery around Galera

Maureen has been checking out properties this morning while I’ve been catching up with the email mountain and figuring out some new lighting and solar power ideas. I still have to hook up my remote controlled relay unit for controlling stuff on the mobile phone… amazing how powerful the sun is at sapping enthusiasm for projects.

I reckon I’ll implement some of this stuff when it gets just a little cooler maybe in October. For now we’ve a BBQ then there’s some horse show on later tonight and of course a trip to La Posa at some point.

    Hi there Susan

    Nice to hear from you…. the summer in Galera certainly has been lovely though some might find it a little hot – especially if one had work to do outside! I managed a few road repairs but that was about it. It’s starting to cool off a little now which should make everyone more productive 🙂 Glad you enjoy the blog. Are you guys planning a trip anytime soon?

  • Dear Pete,

    I am Steve Fleming’s wife and he sent me the link to your blog a few weeks ago. I have been enjoying it greatly and just wanted to introduce myself. He is in London right now working on the Paralympics.

    Best — Susan
