Old shore house, caper flower and Welsh flag waving.

Caper Flower.
Capparis spinosa, the caper bush, also called Flinders rose, is a perennial winter-deciduous plant that bears rounded, fleshy leaves and large white to pinkish-white flowers. The plant is best known for the edible flower buds (capers), often used as a seasoning, and the fruit (caper berry), both of which are usually consumed pickled.

The salted and pickled caper bud (often called simply capers) is often used as a seasoning or garnish. Capers are a common ingredient in Mediterranean cuisine,

The Welsh flag flies over Collingwood House. It is a gift from one of our most regular guests and we are delighted to see it waving in the wind.
The Mega-Yacht Leander in front of the Hotel del Almirante.

Leander G is a luxury yacht built by Peene-Werft at Wolgast in 1992. The yacht is owned by millionaire Sir Donald Gosling. She is presently the world's 60th-largest superyacht.
According to the Wikipedia, following the decommissioning of the Royal Yacht Britannia, she has been used by members of the British Royal Family.
Despite that, and for all we know, none of our guests have been visited publicly by any member of the Royal Family.
