Signs of Summer

Gradually, Formentera is beginning to come to life with the first signs of the summer season. Whereas, when we arrived here a week ago most places were closed and the island was deserted, day by day shops and cafes are opening up, the day trip boats are running again, the buses and ferries are back on full timetables, and the first tourists of the season are turning up. The marina's getting busier as well, though it'll be another month or so until most of the cruising boats and superyachts turn up. We're not sure whether all of this makes us happy or not - the island did feel a bit like a ghost town but it was wonderful to have all the beaches to ourselves and already we've had the first British tourists standing on the dock staring into the boat watching us, but at least there's a bigger choice of bars.
