Guys I'm back and I'm sorry to say without any royal sightings! Ah well, I can look at all the wonderful pics here instead! And I agree with you all, Cristina's figure is amazing for a mother of 4 kids!

Is anyone else upset that they let Miguel jump into the ocean without a life preserver? He's only four years old!

Miguel is 4 years old but he knows to perfectly swim and this watched over its parents. It does not have danger, I do not believe that their parents leave him if outside something bad for Miguel !!!!!

I think that even if he knows how to swim and his parents are around, he should still be wearing a life jacket. I have just watched on my evening news a story about a father and his 8 year old son who drowned in their canoe. Neither was wearing a life jacket. There was an adult present in that situation and the boy was even older than Miguel is.

Things can get dangerous quickly in the water for a multitude of reasons. The tide can get rough or the undercurrent can be strong. It takes just seconds for a child to drown, and if a child feels that there is trouble, they may not be thinking as rationally as they should and they can panic.

I think it was very unsafe for Cristina and Inaki to allow their youngest son to jump off that boat without a life jacket. It doesn't matter how good a swimmer he is or how many adults there were or how much time he's spent on the water.

You don't jump off a boat with life jacket on. It will kick up and at best hit you chin. We can assume Inaki and Christina are responsible parents and that there is no need to second guess their decisions.

When I was about Miguel's age and was learning to swim, my swimming instructor had us jump off the diving board into the deep end of the pool with a life jacket on. Better to have a life jacket hit you in the chin then to drown, right?

One cant learn to swim properly in the sea with a life jacket on, the position gets all wrong, there are several grown ups and one assumes bodyguards as well. I dont know anyone who learns to swim with a lifejacket on, and noone who uses it when they know how to swim. Sometimes other floatingdivices to help support in the beginning until you are relaxed enough to trust that you float by yourself. If one wants to discuss when to wear a life jacket it is when you are on the actual boat or by the sea, then a fall into the sea and a possible hit to the head can come as a suprise and cause danger and the parents might not be as attentive.

I agree with you Alexandria.

Safety Campaigns are meant to allert for dangers that could happen when parents think that no problem could happen because they are there.

I had a cousin who drown in a swimming pool while all family was paying attention, but a few seconds looking elsewhere meant disgrace and pain.

For much extreme-sports lovers Miguel and her brothers are they should pay attention to safety rules.


Also I feel a little worried when I see children act as nothing wrong could happen... I don't think we should raise them in fear of trying things but I wonder how much sense a 4 year-old has to do a jump like this; he needed mum's help to cross the platform (meaning he knew he could fall and hurt himself) but he jumped from it like he could fly and no problem could result from it... oh, sweet inocence!

I guess this jump goes to the galery of driving with a son in your lap that Don Iñaki showed us last year. It was a quiet place, parents were attentive but you just don't do that!

I'm glad that things turned out amusing and funny!

Regards,
mtbcm

Tomorrow we will have photos after many days, though only of the adults, I hope that they do some exit more and beech some opportunity more to see the children. At least to see Leonor, which to the rest we will see when they begin the college, and Leonor will return to be "enclosed" in Zarzuela.

The article speaks about the Island of Cabrera , where the Royal Family goes to the beach. The Island of Cabrera is a Nature reserve, is protected, and only the ship of the King they have permission to throw the anchor in the Island. This article is a critique for this topic. I believe that it does not have felt that they criticize them because of it, because but they went to Cabrera they might not go to the beaches of Majorca, floods of million persons in summer. If they want that their vacations continue passing in Majorca, and publicizing the Islands, at least they must have the privilege of can be calm in a beach.
Certainly, the obsession of the press is curious with Felipe and Letizia, because only he names directly them ... how if the Queen, for example, was not enjoying there taking the sun in swimsuit without indiscreet looks.

You are right, lula, the obsession of the press with Felipe and Letizia is very curious.

If I remember correctly, none of the photos we've seen showed anything other than Miguel actually on the boat and then in mid-air, just after he jumped off. There could have been thirty adults in the water wearing life jackets waiting to catch him. I think it is better to give the benefit of the doubt to the good judgment of his parents, when our vision is so limited.
