I am halfway through my holiday and today I did one of my favourite walks. Deia to Porto Soller via the GR 221.
Leaving Deia we followed the signs for the GR 221 down a cobbled track before making a short diversion down to the beach at Cala Deia. We called in for a coffee at the restaurante that is now forever associated with ‘The Night Manager’
Today there were no shootings and no-one was kidnapped. We just enjoyed our coffee.
Soon we were back on track and following the well known route that I have described before. There were lots of beautiful ancient olive trees. I was sure I could see a face in one of them. It was Bill practising for the Yorkshire Freestyle Gurning Competition.
The path is clear but in places there have been some rock falls and you need to take care.
We were pleased to see that the chapel near Can Prohom which was almost derelict had now been restored.
I had walked along the Cami de Castello a couple of days ago so today we returned to Porto Soller by crossing the Muleta. Someone was making a few euros by selling freshly squeezed orange juice. Just what we needed.
We followed the path down to the port, making some new friends along the way.
We had been walking for five hours and it had been very hot. All the dust had made my throat dry. What I needed now was a cold glass of beer.
Another day to remember.
