Hello there once again avid readers. If any of you have been following the weather reports you would know that last night (and probably the next couple of days) was quite a windy one and we all retired to bed relatively early, since the quiz master gave up and the backdrop to the entertainment kept blowing off! We were all glad of the early night after walking a thousand miles around Mahon and the zoo yesterday.
This morning we were intending to head to a very nice beach at Cala Galdana by coach, but we put this off for a day or so to let the winds settle and the temperature rise, saying that, we still enjoyed low to mid 20s today. Always a bit of a challenge for the sun cream officer as we all know how wind can mask sunburn.
We all took a walk along the coast road after breakfast to the lighthouse and beyond. At a height of 45m it’s light can be seen all the way to the horizon at 19nm. There were some great crashing waves on this part of coast and we watched them at a safe distance.
After a bit of a discussion we decided to have a day around the resort, exploring all those places that we hadn’t reached, dipping in and out of shops, buying more souvenirs and checking out our local beach, which was much windier than the pics suggest. The pupils loved looking at the big waves crashing on the beach wrote few messages in the sand and a few got wet feet when they were caught out by the ‘30th’ wave. Much ice cream was consumed.
After dinner those brave enough went to the pool and had the usual fun times squirting each other with water pistols and trying out their scuba masks.
Dare I say that we are gradually wearing our pupils out? Surely not.
