It’s May and I am back in Mallorca to do some more walks.
After getting up at 2.30 am to go to the airport I am now shattered, but I have a choice. If I lie on the bed I will fall asleep so the best thing is to get my boots on and go for a walk. For the past few days it has rained in Mallorca and some of the paths were quite muddy. Just like back home. On the plus side – the wet weather meant the wild flowers were still looking good.
I did the Lighthouse Trail and enjoying looking at the Olive Trees, some of them centuries old. Fantastic shapes.
After following the GR221 I branched off to head for the refuge at the Muleta.
I returned down the road from the lighthouse. El Faro.
Despite it starting to rain the views across to the mountains was superb. I hope to be climbing some of them in the next week.
Time to go now to my favourite restaurant. Stuffed squid and a bottle of Rioja. I should sleep well tonight.
