Ands there's more..............

thirsty work
the gang
Food that is. On Monday it was the day of the annual Sardine breakfast (Tradicional Dia De La Sardina). The event takes place across the river from the swimming pool in Formentera. its starts mid morning and finishes mid afternoon with free Sardines, bread, wine and beer. We saw last year that many people make a real family occasion of this so this year we were better organised. We arranged to meet up with Bec and joaquin and some of there friends at the El Molino site. A great time was had by all as we shared a picinc along with the sardines. John ate 9 I believe, but was out done by another member of our party who ate at least 16!!! It was wonderful to be part of this local tradition. It is always fun and trouble free, children running around playing, old people meeting up for a chat and a laugh, new babies being shown off, a good time was had by all. Thank you Formentera Corporacion Municipal
