Islas Baleares

We arrived at Mallorca on the last day of August. There we met with our friends from the boat, Neptune II. Alec and Roan were reunited with Elliott, whom they had not seen since we left Marina di Ragusa, Sicily in April.

We tandem sailed with Neptune II around the Balearic islands of Mallorca, Ibiza and Formentera. My favorite spots continue to be in Mallorca, which despite the hordes of tourists had managed to avoid the trashy tourism that one can find in Puerto San Antonio, Ibiza. We spent several days in a beautiful “cala” (little bay), Cala Molto, in Mallorca’s East coast. 

In Cala Calobra, another of my favorite spots in the northwest of Mallorca, we celebrated my birthday (25! yeah! that’s right or, wait a minute, had someone inverted the digits?) with cake and candles, pressies and my own concert with Gary and Roan on the saxophone and, Mark and Vanessa on the guitar - thank you Neptune II for a great birthday party. 

I found Ibiza overbuilt and trashy, although if one could ignore the mega hotel that looked like a gigantic cruise ship, Puerto de San Miguel on the north coast of Ibiza, was quite nice and the sangria at the little beach bar was great.

I had been looking forward to visiting Formentera, the so called "Spanish Caribbean” but, the weather decided that it was autumn, and the island did not feel very tropical. The waters were clear and of a deep turquoise color, yet not warm enough to snorkel. We toured the island by bike together with Neptune II’s crew. It was great fun.

With the weather getting colder, we decided to sail to the Spanish mainland, where we left the boat, and drove to Barcelona to visit my family for a week.
