Settling in

Naturally, the first thing the children want to do is go in the pool and we have to lure them out with breakfast. Everybody wakes up at different times, so some of us have breakfast twice. Simon wants a lazy day so we leave him behind and go in search of adventure.

The first expedition is on foot to the end of our lane, then we take the car and set off with no particular destination in mind. We find signs to Cala Llonga and to Jesus – we decide to go to Cala Llonga and save Jesus for later.

It’s only 5 minutes away and it’s a resort with a busy but not excessively crowded beach with activities – pedalos with slides, a snorkelling area – and a gently sloping sandy beach. The sea is so warm even I get in and Alex and Xara have a fantastic time. Once again we have to tempt them out of the water with food – a snack in a beachfront café followed by watermelon ice lollies.

When we get back the children go in the pool – again – while the adults potter about. Later, I cook dinner in the outside kitchen and the children play Jenga. It’s a relatively early night by Spanish standards.
