Take a Tennis Racquet to Breakfast

Mexico's "Most Wanted". A bandit comes to a table near you.

Mexico’s “Most Wanted”. A bandit comes to a table near you.

The hotel where we’re staying is great. Food, room, beach, pool, staff. All lovely. However, thieves are at work on a daily basis.

Yes, folks. Be prepared to have the food stolen out of your mouths, if you dare to eat outside. The culprits? A band of clever, vociferous, beady eyed, feathered bandits are at work.

Now, our family has a fairly relaxed attitude to animals, so pesky birds are likely to be a source of amusement rather than annoyance, but this morning the long legged whistlers out did themselves.

The hotel has a small number of tables outside for breakfast and a man at another table made the mistake of leaving a bowl of fruit unattended whilst he got a coffee. The first birdy bandit attacked and got away with a strawberry, which he ate at the man’s table. A second made off with a grape. This was watched by a queue of people, including ourselves. The man returned and ate his breakfast, undisturbed by any warning comments from the many crime scene witnesses. Not a moment to be proud of.

I left our table to get toast and when I came back, my daughter was complaining that a bird had tried to land on her head. This, of course, was very funny, until the birdy tried to land on my head.
