Location: Palma, Mallorca
This morning we woke up and felt way too clean to be docked at a working dock, so we spent the morning giving Argo some love so we could fit in. For lunch we all went into town and explored the cafes. This ended up being a little later than usual since we somehow ended up dirtier than Argo started. But eventually we did get into town. Other than science class, the entire afternoon was shore time, giving us a chance to explore the local shops and scout out good places for dinner. Everyone cleaned up nicely after being covered in exhaust, wax, or anchor paint all day. For dinner the staff settled on a place which served suckling pig, while the mates decided to sample the local cuisine with a tapas bar. Everyone cleaned up nicely after being covered in exhaust, wax, or anchor paint all day. As two of our number are leaving in the morning tonight is our last opportunity to be together as a whole boat so we met up after dinner and celebrated our trip.
