22nd - 29th September 2017

What a wonderful holiday we had in Menorca - sunshine, sand, sea, sightseeing and walking.  We had a lovely hotel with good (and lots of) food.  Many thanks to John for all the work he has done in arranging another lovely holiday.  Anyone who has taken photos on this holiday, please send them to me so that I can include them in the slide show.  If I get a lot of pics, I may be able to do a separate slide show just on the Menorca holiday if we get enough people to support coming to see it. 

Can't wait for Slovenia now ............
