Re: Back from our 12th visit

Dandelion, although this is the first year we've had them living in the garden, we've seen them several times on the road to Sa Mesquida and also on the "old scary road" that ran from Son Vitamina up to Alaior, though now that's been widened they might have all been scared off.

Re: October Half Term

End of by any chance ????????? I doubt it Uncle Bert. :grin: I've never taken my boy out of school, because as mentioned up the thread, I would be losing my money if I did so.

Re: October Half Term

My son is at a fee paying school too. Breaks up around 4th July, but because I work in a state school, we can't get away until 17th or 18th July usually, about a week before the state schools near me break up. I don't like hotels, so we stay in a villa, where nobody bothers us and we don't bother an...

The Witbit (I may have the name wrong) is a giant, inflatable thing, anchored about 25 metres out in the sea with slides etc. not my cup of tea.

I think this is their website, it is actually a Wibit http://www.wibitsports.com/?gclid=CK2zl ... tAodpAsAiQ
