OOOOOH!!!! Where to start?????
« on: August 05, 2011, 10:59:44 AM »

This is a challenge - not just for me but for ALL forum members who have long memories and happy (or not so happy) associations with Puerto Pollensa.
As the song says " Where do I begin ... to tell the story of ... etc. etc. ?"

Do I start with the very first day my 'love affair' with Puerto Pollensa began?
Or the day I was whisked away to lunch at the Club Nautico by a famous Spanish film star?
Or maybe the time of the 'big storm' when we kept El Barco open for 36 hours without electricity whilst we fed & watered the poor boys on the marina who were tending their boats?
Or even earlier than that when they started to reclaim the land in front of my shop on the seafront to build the car park (that is now)?
And of course you are sure to want to know about the times we had in El Barco during the filming of Ziggy Stardust and then later in Gina's Music Bar (Hostal Luz del Mar) when they were filming The Great Onassis!!
And then there was the time.........
and of course I just have to tell you about........
and him......
and her........
and them........

Oh dear!   What a dilemma!   I shall just have to go away and think about it!!

It's Nice to be Important - but it's More Important to be NICE!

OOOOOH! Gina, I am sooo looking forward to hearing all about the above. :)

I know you could probably write a book with all your tales....but even if you manage 1 story per week we would appreciate it.....or more if you can manage!! :)
