Time had caught us unawares and it was time to make plans to head south and west. With a distance of 550nm to Gibraltar, we were keen to break the journey into small legs. For that we needed the cooperation of the weather. Did it play ball? We had some great moments - encounters with local legends, live music, old friends and a chance meeting with a sister boat.

We spent almost two weeks in Menorca, visiting a variety of anchorages. Softer than it's big sister, but no less beautiful - the jagged coastline softened by idyllic sandy beaches and calas.

Third time lucky! We took a chance to visit the anchorage of Soller on Mallorca's west coast, having been thwarted twice before. It's a beautiful horseshoe bay, surrounded by the towering mountains of the Tramuntana mountain range.

A wind free day had us motoring from Santa Ponca to Cala Deia on Mallorca's west coast. It was a beautiful day for enjoying the scenery. The cala is very pretty, backed by the Tramuntana mountains. And amazingly, we had the place all to ourselves overnight!
