The weather has continued hot and sunny and we haven't had any significant rain since we've been here. The harvest is in full swing and the sound of combine harvesters can be heard most days. The only draw-back is the dust they produce has covered all the boats. Even the water in the marina has a film of scummy dust on the surface. The first thing I intend doing when we leave next week will be to wash and polish the boat. It's not possible to do it here as the water level is so low that the pontoons are too high to work from, they come half way up the boat sides.
