We have been enjoying spending time with friends and family,
the last couple of nights we anchored in Mamora Bay
adjacent to St James Club, where everyone is staying, and spent the day on the
Just one hitch – ‘Alfred’ keeps coming to
see us in his cart, whilst we are on the beach, forcing rum punches on us.
Grand dad just can’t resist them so we have been
having a spot of trouble with him…….
It seems to be the practice to reserve sun beds with towels and
so for most of the day we sat on the sand whilst one young girl guarded a huge
amount of beds despite no one using them. Eventually the scenario was too much
and after a couple of rum punches Grand dad swam up and pinched one of the
beds, swiftly followed by Matthew and Charlie.
During the next visit from the cart there was a bit of a
kerfuffle when a man came to confront Dad about the beds and explained,
‘ We get up at 7am to reserve these beds’ to
which Grand dad replied ‘ I thought only the Germans used
that tactic’ !
