Hello Mariusz,
I would expect it to be sunny all the time on the cape of Ponta de São Lourenço. I was there in July and I had the feeling that this was a hike through the desert (with desert climate).
Great view steeply down. Good contrast between the blue ocean and the pink brown cliffs. The force with which the waves crash on the rocks is visible in the white foam.
Santana is almost always a rainy place but usually with soft rain.
My most beautiful walk was from Pico do Arieiro to Pico Ruivo and back (I also had to go back because of transport) but also the toughest trip I've made on the island. I probably couldn't do it now anymore.
Many years ago I was one day in Southern California, in San Diego. Just before my departure to Baja California. That was in July and it was indeed very cloudy. No high temperatures at all and very dull weather in a city that seemed boring to me.
At the border with Mexico the sun shone. Very strange, but the border between the two countries was also the boundary in the sky between cloudy and clear skies.
At that time I remembered the song 'Seems it never rains in southern California' and it became clear to me that Albert Hammond only knew this from hearsay...
This is the very first time anyone who has been to California has confirmed this kind of climate to me.
Best regards, Paul

Bonjour Pierre,

Ces photos ont été affichées ce matin sur la page d'accueil de TrekEarth.
Probablement déjà hier.
Mais je viens de remarquer que la page a déjà été modifiée aujourd'hui.
