Home Again

Malcom and I returned home last night - after a two hour delay to our flight - from a few days away in Santa Ponsa, Mallorca.  We were very fortunate with the weather and had almost wall-to-wall sunshine, with just a few clouds, except for yesterday when the wind blew and the rain fell.  It's always a good time to get bad weather, when you are on the way home anyway!
Santa Ponsa, despite being the typical Mediterranean resort, had some beautiful countryside surrounding it and we spent a lot of our time walking the surrounding hills and admiring the views across the bay.
The waters of Santa Ponsa Bay, were clear and blue and surrounded in large part by Pine-clad slopes providing shade in the sunniest parts of the day.
From the other side of the bay, the built-up resort provided the archetypal backdrop to the bay with the foot hills of the Serra de Tramuntana, the mountain range which forms the North-Western side of the island.
You can bet there will be plenty more photos from our trip over the next few days, with many new  wild flower species noted, I have been rather busy 'ticking them off'.  So, stay tuned....!
