This morning we woke to a very overcast day and after doing a little packing in preparation for our departure tomorrow we were undecided what to do. The car was filthy from the previous nights sandy rain, so we originally thought about getting the car washed but after checking the forecast, it had given out 80% chance of thunderstorms. So a dog walk was decided upon, as we prepared ourselves to go the sun popped out, resulting in it being to hot and humid for the dogs! So we reverted to filling the car up with fuel and getting it washed off. Afterwards we settled on Cales Coves. A short walk down a dusty single uneven track leads you to a picturesque coastal inlet of two arms, bathed by turquoise crystal clear waters. The land is formed of an impressive amphitheatre of limestone rock with more than 100 caves! There are also a large number of fig trees that have colonised the whole area. By now it was overcast again and spitting with rain. Such a shame as when the sun is shining the colour of the sea alone is worth the visit. Josh wanted me to join him snorkelling and I was a little reluctant due to the weather. But after a little persuasion I was in. I was so glad that I did. Not only did we get to see the Coves from a different angle, but also the fish, that came swimming up to us to investigate. They seemed so friendly, and seemed to be following us though the crystal clear sea. Vicky sat with the dogs watching as Tom dipped his feet in but after seeing crabs, he was a little timid of going in. Time was cracking on and we needed to get to the vets in Mahon for the dogs to have the worming treatment done to gain easy passage back into the UK. The vets were very clean, modern and very professional, and after a short wait we were seen by an English speaking German Lady, who was very thorough. She started by scanning the microchips and checking the detail against the passport, then a thorough medical examination, administrating the worming treatment and recording all the necessary signatures, stamps, dates and times etc into the Pet Passport. We must have been in there for at least 30 - 40 mins. Most likely to justify the cost which was more than expected. She said that the usual charge for one dog is 45 Euros, however because we had two and had a joint appointment, she would give us a discount for cash, totalling €73.50 Euros! Not sure but this seems expensive, maybe we should have waited until France. However we have a timescale to get the dogs back into the UK from when the treatment is administered. ( 48 - 120 hours ) I'll look into this upon return. I didn't want a late night tonight, with the early start we have tomorrow. So after dashing back from the vets to get ready for the evening, we started our goodbye rounds. Starting with Merlins, Pitos then final onto the Aloha. Where seats were waiting for us, even though it was packed. Then friends started buying us drinks! So much for the early night. It was also the first night that a chill was felt in the air. I could have easily worn jeans, after living in shorts all week. Its amazing how the weather changes as soon as September arrives! At about 1am it started spitting with rain! After saying all our goodbyes it was another 2am finish! By the time we got bed it was pushing 3am and the alarm was set for 8am. Christ I'm dreading the morning!
