Late Autumn In The Southern Med

Skies still blue most days, but daytime highs down to 70, which feels quite chilly.

The first rains found a leak in the roof, which in a house that has been evolving for 200 years and has 1 to 2 foot thick stone walls, ceilings and floors represents a major diagnostic challenge. I eventually tracked it down using multivariate analysis and fluid dynamics.

The fruit trees in our yard are looking very fruitful. The oranges here are small, but - being home grown - taste excellent!
