RAF 100 Centenary Flypast

I was lucky enough to watch the RAF 100 centenary flypast from the bank of the River Thames whilst walking between sites today. It was amazing to see so many different types of aircraft and some impressive formation flying.

An unusual Rainbow

This evening (approx 18:30) we saw this unusual rainbow – a short rainbow directly above us. The rainbow occurred within a busy airline flight path. It wasn’t raining at the time.

A Week in Menorca

This week we headed out to Menorca where we stayed at the Victoria Playa Hotel in the sleepy resort of Sant Tomàs. 

Highlights included a trek to the Cova des Coloms – a large cavern about 24 meters high and 100 meters deep which was reached by a lovely (although poorly signposted) trail inland from Playa Binigaus.
