We've spent longer than we would have
done here because we've met up with family and friends, which is fine
as it's much more fun when you're sharing your adventures.
Thanks to Helen's meticulous research we ate at some fantastic
restaurants which we'll certainly return to when we're back here later in the
year and next April/May. We had a great day sail from Santa Eulalia to
Cala Llonga with John and Helen and we were sorry to see them leave on
Wednesday. We endured the side-on swell for an extra couple of days to
stock up with essentials and have a haircut. Chris and I both have
short, baby-fine hair. Since leaving marinas we've been making our
own water and washing our hair in the demineralised water makes it go really
fluffy - we look like a pair of dandy-lion seeds! Anyway, we were
both over-due a trim which we had this morning. I think Simon the
hairdresser was an apache indian in a previous life; I'm one step away from a
Sinead O'Connor, (unfortunately my bone structure isn't). Great cut
though, and I won't need another for a while.
shorn, we're heading to Mallorca tomorrow. We've loved Ibiza more than we
ever imagined - but then again hundreds of billionaires can't be wrong can
they? Boy, there's some money around here, summed up for me by the name of
one super-yacht: Just Another Toy. We've seen the largest of
Abramovitch's yachts (he has several), Eclipse a few times, and I ask myself,
"Two helipads, why?" Simon reliably informs us that these guys haven't
been hit by the recession, Ibiza's busier this year than ever.
we're off to Menorca. We had our dive-tanks filled yesterday and,
according to good old Google, Menorca has the best dive-sites of the Balearics
so it would be rude not to give them a go.
