Re: Herman Tortoises

Not at all. You have every right to your opinion and I’m not necessarily saying that I disagree with you. (And even if I did, I certainly wouldn’t cancel to your account for disagreeing with me! :D :D ) Just saying that we don’t know the facts or background.

Maybe Gaité du Feu?
They sell them but not sure if they install them if not bought there. Nothing to lose to give them a ring.

Know what you mean. I still feel that way every time I go away (Be singing Paul Young all day now :D ). Soon as I see the Alberes range ahead I feel good, know I’m home.

Re: Banned from the beach

I think that there were quite a few people taking to the beaches, particularly with this lovely weather, in groups, families, kids etc so it was decided that the only way to stop this was to ban everyone.
