1) the 2nd largest natural deep water port in the world. Only beaten by Pearl Habour.
2) named by the Romans as the minor island in the Balearics (Menorca) as opposed to the major island (Majorca).
3) Nelson docked his fleet here twice
Anyway, our trip was to include a visit to the gin distillery (as mentioned in a previous blog), a sail around the harbour and shopping time! So that’s 2 out of the 3 on Mrs CT’s approved list.
Note – I got reminded on a couple of occasions by you know who, that the boy’s mother was off limits!
Next up, a one hour cruise around the harbour in the motorised catamaran, the Don Joan………
This proved to be the correct decision. Today the sun had done a disappearing act to be replaced by clouds and a very strong northerly wind. When our fellow passengers returned to the coach they were all complaining of frost-bite and wind burn! This included the 2 Danish girls from our hotel who I was not allowed to take a picture of.
TOP TIP #2 – Mahon is not Palma. The shopping is very disappointing.
When we returned to resort at lunch time we went on a Sangria fuelled bar crawl around town. Hence the lateness of this blog.
