Just in case I don't irritate people enough.....

    I could have posted audio of the Mediterranean waves falling onto the beach just below me..... but I thought that might be too cruel.

    For those struggling ...there is life after teaching in UK state schools now..... I just acknowledge that I am extremely lucky to be where I am now..... at 64 I still work.... still teach but.... virtually (for now) get to pick and chose what I do. My teacher pension whilst not great added to some small private income, thanks to my mother and grandparents, means I am doing ok (Of course I still kick MrREMfan out to work)

    I know I am very lucky.... just hope that all those who posted over half term find today not as hard as they feared and that they cope.

    Must be hard climbing over all those rocks.

    It would have been! I delegated that to the iguanas though. I concentrated on the swimming.

    Oooh, a holiday! Nice. What's that in the water, though? With the sinuous snake-like neck and narrow head? Above the rocks, over on the right. Reminds me of...

    The place gets its name (Gullet) from all the pelicans. You're just bobbing along in the water and a pelican arrows towards you!

    I tried to take good photos of the perishin' things but I'm no (erm) Ansel Adams????

    Pelican, eh? Sure. That's what they want you to think.

    Looks peaceful and calm @HelenREMfan. I'm assuming it's not a cruise- not the right sort of balcony or pool!

    I'm only irritated because I have several holidays I'd like to do but I can't decide which ones to choose
