We just walked two piers and had to change our T-shirts because they were raining through. We had already showered. It only rains on Lanzarote if you have painted the deck of the ship with fresh new anti-slip paint in the afternoon.

It rains when you are invited to dinner with friends on another ship. It rains when you forget to close one of the roof hatches. It rains when the shoes are on the dock.

It's raining in Playa Blanca. You cannot be further south on Lanzarote. Wikipedia is crap. I have no idea how we can get the inside of Sissi dry again in the next few days. Of course the wind turns and of course it rains directly into the salon through the open companionway.

Our major case is just hitting the mast, the wind has turned. None of us are motivated to go back on deck after changing the T-shirts to stop the noise. It's raining.
