Travelling etiquette 

One of the first guide books said that when on one’s holidays it is imperative to mix one’s down time with cultural pursuits. Consequently, we went for lunch in Eivissa, the main town in Ibiza.

After a spectacular lunch of beef carpaccio, salmon tartare and prawns in garlic oil we ventured up hill into the old town, Dalt Villa; to enjoy the view: the perfect blend of relaxing and sightseeing!

Day of the biscuits

In Hong Kong the locals had the proclivity to take my photo – in Ibiza instead of a preoccupation with portraiture it seems there is an obsession with biscuit feeding.

Yesterday I was given an inordinate number of biscuits to munch on throughout the day.

At breakfast time I shared some digestives with Sampson and Fe-Fe, then for 11sies gran-gran gave me her biscuit that came with her coffee, as did the big d. After lunch we met two ladies sitting on a bench and they gave me a couple of their special biscuits.
 Then walking home on the beach we met a Spanish lady with her two children. I spent some time playing with the younger boy and his mum let me have one of his biscuits.


Once at home I raided the biscuit tin and managed to steal a couple before anyone noticed!

It was ok though as I still ate all of my supper.

Ship ahoy!

After the sad demise of the SS Ibiza I would like to introduce her replacement the SS Ibiza II 

As you can see I’ve upgraded my vessel to a model that is 20 cm longer 6 cm wider with power steering and a horn, which is most useful for the congested waterways of San Antonio

RIP SS Ibiza

It’s a sad day. The SS Ibiza has sailed her last. She served me well and will be sorely missed after succumbing to a puncture. A repair kit costs more than a new one so with a heavy heart we send her to the boat graveyard in the sky 😦

Bob, Bob, Bobbing Along 

Today marked a significant milestone – I swam, well floated, unaided for the first time. Four times in all. A little unsure about it, but I think I’ll get more confident over the next week and a half. Sadly I didn’t get a photo. But here’s a good one with me with my foot in my mouth.
