Nick’s short attention span means there’s never a dull moment ... Just when you think
all is calm and quiet he’s disappeared below and is pulling things out of cupboards
to find ... the sextant! Of course :) It’s time to take sights!
Thankfully we also have GPS as a ‘backup’ ...
Escapism in Espalmador
Ah, back in beautiful Espalmador! BBQs, hammock and stunning turquoise waters! What
more could you ask for?
Well, a visit from Spanish customs of course! And a friendly seagull that adopted
our radome as it’s home and despite Wally’s attempt he could not be dislodged!
A jovial Jubilee!
Whilst Britain was celebrating in the rain, HMS Ootnic donned the appropriate attire
for such an occasion (a big thank you to mummy Stackpool for the signal flags!),
minus the rain, and lit the BBQ in honour of Liz!
A casual swim across the causeway and the Ootnics were exploring the sands of Formentera
... With a new island comes new adventures and this one certainly didn’t disappoint
Although it seemed like we could spend forever in Espalmador, eventually adventure
called and we decided to get underway again. The next port of call, Ibiza. We spent
some lovely time there last year and were looking forward to seeing more of what
the island had to offer.
While we were there we revisited a few favourites, discovered some new and made some
lovely friends along the way. After a night or two as neighbours in Cala Llonga,
Sue and Barry of Onwards became fast friends and we very much enjoyed bumping into
them again all over the island :)
