With some prescience I mentioned Prince Charles’ foreshadowing of his and Diana’s marriage in his comment “Whatever In Love Means” a few posts ago but this morning I’m bringing this baby much closer to home.
I spent a lovely week last July in Puerto Pollenca with Mr Carmichael, Gracie (my long time friend) and her husband, A…….
We rented a house which was, to say the least, oversold in its promotional material in particular the use of a fish eye lens to photograph the pool but we did love the area, Pine Walk, where it was located – ish (certainly not the 100 yards the brochure promised) from the sea.
I took lots of photos I fell deeply for a pair of gates…….
I loved them so much I took a few close ups……..
I loved not only their modernist appearance but because I could see a pool the size of a pool and not a puddle beyond their keypad entry system.
We went to the Illa d’Or’s bar…….
“Gin and tonic? Don’t mind if I do, Camarero.”
This month Mr C and I return to PP a deux. This time we shall stay in the Illa d’Or apartments, behind those gates where a pool is a pool, the saunter to the sea is only an inch or so and the G and T’s sweet as…….
May many more of my random photographs foreshadow holidays of the future.
I’ll drink to that thought. Chin chin.
I’m liking the ones with a story this week:

ive looked at your ‘about’ but can’t find your email addr. Is that my stoopid?
No I just used the email address that came with your post notification email. I have just read your email…how exciting!
You always tell great stories!
Even better ‘cos this one’s the truth 🙂 Kidding, the rest are too.
such marvellous gates definitely deserve a closer acquaintance.
Yes, I’ve wanted to go through them for more than a year.
Sometimes, it ain’t all it’s cracked up to be, but something good came out of it. Cheers! *clink clink* 😉
you could not be more correct f and f.
I love, love, love that gate…..and your holiday sounds as though it will be utterly marvellous! Chin, chin 🙂
Oh, that gate…our holiday cannot be bad… we have enough planned and those plans include the Gin and Tonic Bar every evening.
Boy would I like to be sitting there right about now!
me too although I have to admit I have partaken of at least one G and T this evening. But not by the sea.
Its still mid afternoon for me!
The height of abstemious 🙂
HAHAHAAAAAAAA! That cracked me up ! Guess what ? It’s now 8:58 pm..WAY past Abstemious !!!
I want those gates for my yard.
Margaret, they’re mine!
Nice gates, I love the design.
Neat, huh? Can’t wait to be going through them.
Those gates are divine, but the Gin and Tonic Bar is heavenly 🙂
Almost time for a blue one with elderflower I think…
way over time to my mind.
The foreshadowing of many happy holidays ahead with G&Ts sounds perfect. 🙂
Oh yes and fingers xed.
It’s good to be home and away from Oman, but I will always have the wanderlust! 🙂
I’m looking at brochures of India as I type 🙂
Ahh, you should check out my India blog! (south asia)… Just a warning that I don’t think of India as a holiday, but it is certainly an adventure! 🙂
Ok I actually am lost for words! Go on then what’s it called?
🙂 It’s catbird in south asia: http://catbirdinindia.wordpress.com/
Fantastic gates – would love to meet the person whose imagination designed them!
Did you cast your free form into the Olympic water feature or simply sit back and enjoy the gate… and the G&T’s? 😛
beer in a paper cup 😦
