There is actually some progress. In the picture are the concrete blocks that have been poured into the shutters ready to be dropped in the water and have ropes attached for the moorings. This work and picture was taken last week.

Re: Properties under threat in the National Park

It’s not just the National Park they are targeting. I received a demolition order for 91m square meters of my house last week. Needless to say the fight is on :shock: :shock:

Re: Web Cam

I think I recall seeing part of the canopy from the restaurant below but that has now gone, or should I say collapsed, so that might be why the view looks different. Rumour is the restaurant has been sold and will be something along the lines of Chinese/sushi style.

Re: Electricity charges

One of the best energy saving things I have installed is a gas water heater. This replaced the electric water heater which are very common on the island.

Re: Cala Corb Walkway

I spoke to the port authority last month about it and they have no idea when it will be completed. Since then the port authority has been busted for corruption and embezzlement and court cases are pending so there's another half finished project in Menorca that will sit dormant for years to come.

Es Castell fiesta 2020....

......didn’t happen in any way shape at all. There was a strong police presence in the town with a constant flow of marked and unmarked police cars driving around the town making sure that nothing started. Drinking on the streets was banned and a few places closed altogether. The main theme seemed t...
