Tidy the yacht!
From Palma our route took us clockwise toward the extraordinarily beautiful north coast of Mallorca; from Isla Dragonera in the southwest to Cap Formentor in the east; a series of dramatic cliffscapes dropping straight into deep crystal clear azure waters, remote bays, inlets and anchorages along the spine of the Serra de Tramuntana (Mountains of the 'Northern Wind'. Well deserving of its status as a World Heritage Site.
Along this spectacular coastline the bay of Port de Soller s a perfect and normally well protected natural harbour. It is understandably popular but space was found to drop the hook - luckily because we had an important calendar engagement to fulfil - Fiona's arrival to join us! Hence the need to tidy the boat - I exaggerate slightly although it did force the need to address a recent olive oil spill into the deepest recesses of the fridge.
Many thanks also to Petey and Roo owners of Bonnie Lass Charters for their warm welcome, an evening of pizzas and dits onboard their beautifully restored 1949 Weatherhead Ringnetter and (most helpfully) loan of a vehicle to pick Fiona up at an ungodly hour the following morning.
