... path leading to pirates cave. After lunch he was determined to do this, I let him go and got comfy by the pool. He arrived back an hour or so later, extremely sweaty, mumbling something about 189 lung busting steps. He says the tread on the steps was double the normal size. So glad I didn't go.

Dinner at the local was very nice-chatted with a ...
... the pirates and beautiful stonewalls with limestone caves etc. Lots of photos here, always a sign that I really like the place. After doing a boat tour around the harbour, I took a little train up to the old town/ bastion. When I came back there was nothing like a rose in the sun!
