7th May 2018 – Menorca

After a coffee in the pretty port of Fornells on the north coast of the island we made our way towards the Cavalleria peninsula.

The wild flowers in the hedgerows along the narrow roads were stunning but, although we were often close enough to touch them, it was not sensible to stop to take photos. There were, however, plenty of opportunities to take photos of the flora and the fauna as we walked the long distance path (Cami Cavalls) along the fabulous section of the coastline from the sandy bay of Cavalleria to within sight of the golden beaches of Binimel-lá.

Not sure if this constitutes a nature photo – locals taking mud baths at the beginning of our walk.
