Any shepherds in the area would have agreed that a red sky at night was indeed a sign of good weather at least for the morning. By 5pm yesterday though the clouds had rolled over and the wind had picked up. By 7pm it was calm again.
The sunset last night was just dull. It doesn't seem to have made any difference though - the sky is brilliant blue and the sun is shining. Wednesday is now our beach day so let's hope that the clouds stay away until at least 6pm.
