Hi - Ian again. A quiet day in Mahon. Started with a trip around the harbour on a typical glass bottom boat. The highlight was a visit to Isle de Rei in the middle of the harbour. Learnt a lot about the history of Menorca and all the visitors / occupiers over the last 300 years - well worth a visit if you are ever on Menorca. The harbour ...
... to a beautiful mansion on the seafront with truely great views. As well as a great lunch Peter was well read in the history of Mahon harbour.
We have been dropped back to our lovely dry boat, but still too hot to stay onboard during the day so now in a bar preparing for some tourism tomorrow.
Signing off john.
Active day on the boat today although sailing miles much reduced - John cleaned and dried a pretty wet boat after yesterday's sail. Hard work aside we had time for a pleasant breakfast, lunch and now having lamb/sea bass for supper. Mahon an interesting town - quieter today as now entering the low season - maybe the marina prices will drop. Walked up into the old town before food looking at the sights! but now back on the waterside for food. Tomorrow may be even less active.
We really did leave on time this morning. 7am and we left our mouring almost silently. A perfect first two to three hours on one tack up the southerly coast of the island - the last couple of hours was a bit painful as the sea swellbuilt up and the wind shifted. So plenty of tacking ...
... instructions to me. John did the tricky anchoring bit at the end. Paddled into town for supper Weather forecast tomorrow more of the same so should be fine sailing. Enjoying ourselves.
P.s. ian is a blind bugger, so I have had to edit this, or no one would understand it, ( dont worry he cant read this)
On a serious note it is very fine that we are back sailing together ...
