The lovely and dramatic island of Mallorca and her yacht filled capital city of Palma awaited us after a morning of BA and a lunch of sandwiches. We motored closer to the marina but were denied a slip because of it was full of mega yachts waiting for hurricane season to pass before they crossed the Atlantic. After anchoring off of a beach and being shuttled ashore, many spectacular sights, smells, and tastes were experienced by everyone. Of particular interest were the cathedral surrounded by meticulously manicured gardens and palm trees, the gigantic marina, and the quaint old town. We were treated to an amazing meal of mashed potatoes, balsamic marinated chicken with bell peppers and onions, fresh green beans, and a salad with homemade vinaigrette by our head chef Phil and his helpers. We are looking forward to a night out and whatever Palma brings to us tomorrow.
