Our neighbour used the words “Hell Hole” to describe winter in Canet, he was waiting for his new 47 Catana to be delivered. His boat was delayed in production for 3 months and now it was complete, the wind was having the last laugh delaying his departure by a further two weeks.
As for us we have only been here for a week and already I am starting to agree with the hell hole description. Here the winter wind is bone numbing cold and ferocious. I am in shock, coming from summer to this bitter cold wind that bites. Since the day we arrived the wind has been non stop, only varying in intensity but never ceasing. I think more of the Canet residents for living in a “winter” war zone, particularly watching the workers outside in winds of 40 knots plus, day in day out. That’s hard work.
Yet I love Canet in the summer, the winter, I am not a fan.
“Regardless what name you give this wind, it is just shit”
That’s another quote from my “47” neighbour which I happen to agree with on this day of wind and more wind.
The wind did eventually stop, and INXS got to leave.

PS as I press publish it is a perfect spring day without a breath of wind. Summer is coming…..
