It's lovely, but I don't think I could live on a small island like that. I'd keep thinking that a storm was going to brew up and flood me out! Now if the house was standing up on a rock .....

Well I suppose even if you use it as a holiday place, you'd still need a boat or something to reach it, although I can see some more land not far away from it.

It's very picturesque, but I don't like flat expanses of water, after nearly drowning in some.

nude beaches? no such thing, dennis, if it's a beach, or a park or a nice bit a rocky real estate, you'll find nudes like seals lolling everywhere.

no, no, the photographer chased them off so as not to ruin a perfectly lovely landscape.

And ruin it they do! : )

The Maspaloma Beach in Gran Canaria - a beautiful area of dunes which, separated by about 64 miles of the Atlantic, are the tail end of the Sahara sands; now dotted with hideous naked forms. Nakedness doesn't bother me, but you feel like saying: "Put 'em on again!" : )

Parts of the beach ... http://www.spain.info/export/sites/spai ... 272544.jpg

Lovely - until you reach the shore and see all the wobbly bits!

I cannot quite grasp the point of lolling on a beach for hours.... swimming is great, but baking in the sun, dripping into your eyes, flies buzzing about, wasps if you brought a sandwich, the guy next to you changing into his speedos....

I'm the same. I've never liked roasting on a beach when there's so much more you could be doing/seeing. I've known loads of examples where folk haven't even left their hotel pools to do THAT much though. : (
Fancy shelling out hundreds or thousands for a holiday, and then just lying there. It seems a hell of an expensive way to relax to me.

You have a point, but they could do that at home couldn't they, if lounging around's all they fancy doing for 1 or 2 weeks?
