We’ve now logged our first cruising week sailing around Mallorca. The scenery has been stunning, the ports quaint, and we’re refining our taste for Sangria. Unlike the Caribbean, the Mediterranean winds are not very predictable so every day we let Mother Nature determine where we’ll be going – yesterday, because of the wind shifts, we backtracked three hours to the quiet anchorage of Cala Formentor, arriving just before nightfall.
In one week we’ve made almost a dozen stops, done all types of sailing, and had the motor running more than we would have liked – but no complaining, we’re taking it all in and enjoying every minute.
Below are some images that do a much better job of capturing the island’s beauty.
