2010-05-25 -- Ibiza

We chartered a power boat and went to lunch on one of the smaller islands with a nice beach. After the boat, some went shopping in the old section of Ibiza, some went to the airport, some relaxed at the airport. Dinner was at Can Curreu, a small hotel outside the city.

Sunrise in Ibiza. I spontaneously woke up at precisely the right moment to get this, then went back to bed. No sunrise the next day; it was completely foggy, and I didn't wake up. (Well, OK, obviously the sun did come up, and obviously I did wake up, just neither cooperated to produce a picture).

Other than the beautiful beach, and the restaurant (not very beautiful), and the beach goers (50/50 beautiful), our stop for lunch contained a wreck of a building and a shack. Lots of people wandered over to it, but there was nothing much there.

G practiced diving off the boat.

We had our own photo shoot, though our models chose to wear less interesting clothing (and, unfortunately, less of it).

And then had to pull up the anchor manually because the winch had no power.

The old town, with a bit of construction. The first time I was here I didn't bring the camera, the second time (now) the sun didn't cooperate.

Ibiza gets some power from a garbage and gas fired power plant,both of which spew noticable emissions. This is showing only one set of the stacks.

I saw a guy with a saxophone playing here last night, and was crushed I didn't bring the camera, so I was happy when I saw a man practicing guitar.

The back yard of the restaurant Can Curreu had an ancient tree, destroyed once, but regrowing.

"Red Tuna carpaccio with salad of sprouts and Wasabi oil" (and splotches of burnt sugar), followed by "Duck breast with sauce of red fruits and pears in red wine", which I somehow forgot to take a picture of. The "red fruits" turned out to be remarkably similar to...blueberries. I had a San Miguel Especial which wasn't anything special, just a lager.
