Military Bunker, Sa Coma Beach, Mallorca.

When the temperature reaches 40c when you are on holiday and my idea of a heat wave is 23c it was time to hit the beach.. I already knew there was some bunkers nearby, so decided to go for a dip in the sea then go look for some of the 3 bunkers I had read about. About a 10 minute walk up the beach wearing nothing but a pair of swimming shorts I found it, so tip toeing around the shards of glass I managed to scramble around and check it all out.
This was the 1st time I had managed to use my new camera for what I had intended to do so.. And all in I am more than happy with the Fuji x30 as a little 1 too take around. I also think that my little girl will be more than happy with using it when she come out exploring with me over the summer.

History
Locally there are 3 reported bunkers to see, but as we all know there are more than likely more to be found.
These bunkers are defensive elements built during the Spanish Civil War (1936 – 1939) in order to stop de Republican troops from landing. These bunkers can be seen in the ‘marés’ (stone) quarry and at the entrance to Punta de n’Amer from Sa Coma beach.
