Default Thought I'd share this little nugget from my hol

I wonder if this had happened to anyone else. Twice in three days I got bopped on the nut by two flying parasols whilst sat minding my own business having a quiet beer. Once in the Aries Bar and the other at the cafe where the glass bottomed boats drop folk off at Formentor. Both times I didn't get hurt but it could so easily have been a different story.

Imagine going to A&E with a bump on the napper then having to go back a couple of days later!

Occupational hazard of being on the beach as well! I've lost count of the times over the years I narrowly avoided a low flying umbrella

Not only on the beach, i was cracked on the head a couple of years ago by a shutter while sitting outside the Circulo Cultural. Those Mallorcan winds can be very dangerous
