Hayley and Des - Jack and Emily and little Freddie are staying in an apartment at Prinsotel at Sa Caletta near to us. There are two pools. The first picture is the one they overlook on their first floor apartment, the second picture of a pool is the one by the restaurant.

This is the first time we have been able to watch from our apartment.
Some of our family have seen it in the past...
I love the last picture that shows Mallorca so clearly at dusk.
Good one of Brian and sun going down.
Matt and Alex the red boat is JUMBO the one you both went on to the secluded beaches and had the paella you didn't like too much. Or rather Alex didn't.
By the way everyone, Matt is safe and has left Madrid and San Sebastion for Alicante, so he has told us, to visit his other grandparents and go on home. Bombs today in the north of Spain, so glad he is off...!

A tanned Matt on his last evening at Fusion. In the morning he takes the Balearia boat to Barcelona where he will be staying with a couple in their apartment. Brenden is an English language teacher from Manchester and Lola is a primary school teacher. They have an eight year old daughter called Paola. Matt took the metro from the port to their apartment and after getting hold of him this morning he is settled and off to the market and Maritime Museum and then this afternoon/evening to a fiesta with the family. Hopefully he will stay in contact... matt?
ps - he is most prob off to the market to replace the three tee shirts, socks and pants (arsenal) he has left here. Not to mention the jacket!!!!
