Menorca



On rather drab days like today, I like to remind myself of visits to warmer climes. It's 2 years and 2 months since our holiday in Menorca, the only one of the three Blearic Islands that we hadn't previously visited. The photo is of the beach at Cala'n Porter where we stayed. I took it from the top of the steps that climb the cliffs of the bay to the streets above. A road winds down there too, and you can take one of those road trains up and down if you want, but the steps are the most direct route if you are on foot. It was a long way down, and seemed even longer coming back up, but it was worth it to swim in that beautifully clear water and laze on the sands or wander the paths beside them.
