16 August 2014 | Palma
Another overnighter took us to Palma in Mallorca where we arrived at 0700 hours in rain and grey skies, the first real rain we've seen for a couple of years, and it all looked very uninspiring. We anchored outside in the bay and luckily the day improved and we could finally see the cathedral through the mist.
The first day and night were OK but on the second, the wind came up and the sea started playing up making the boat move around uncomfortably until we both felt a bit sea sick! On the third morning, the Port officials came by and told us we weren't allowed to anchor there anyway! Wondered why we were all on our own!
We moved into La Lonja Marina and were expecting to pay an extortionate amount of money as they had quoted us €162 on a web site. It turned out to be €82 per night so we splashed out on 2 nights and gave Matilda a good clean before the family arrived.
We are berthed just below the cathedral too. Not a bad spot is it?!
