The longest day

Apart from being the longest day, today was unremarkable, save for interesting cloud formations, and the sea mist which hovered along the coastline, rolling in and out, a little like the tide.  I walked a circuit of the town. The beaches were almost empty. When I came to the Balcon de Europa it was enveloped in mist, creating an eerie atmosphere.
I heard for the first time on this visit raucous bird noises from the palm trees above the plaza, and spotted a pair of noisy parakeets in confrontation with a pidgeon. Not that it's as easy to tell from the photograph as it was from the noise they made, as they staked their claim to a branch.
The skies cleared as the evening wore on, promising normal flamin' June weather tomorrow.
