Muddy boots in Mallorca

75 Muddy Boots

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.

For more info on – The Lighthouse Trail and El Faro see my blog from last year.

My aim is to create a photo diary of my walks and my travels. I have two main hobbies, walking and photography and these complement each other. I am a senior citizen, what used to be called an old age pensioner, but I don't feel old. Since retirement I have had more time to pursue my hobbies and the opportunity to travel more. My philosophy now is - Do what you can, while you can. My other interests are fine wines and keeping fit. These may not complement each other but keep me happy.
