This was the view from our holiday house in Majorca. It was breathtaking, the blue of the pool stretching out towards the blue of the bay below.
The weather was gorgeous, such a lovely change from what we had left behind at home and we all looked forward to enjoying both the pool and the sunshine for the next seven days of our family holiday.
Unfortunately, my baby granddaughter was taken ill with a virus on the first day we were there. The local doctor was marvellous, but it wasn’t until three worrying days later that she started to eat and drink again properly. When she was on the mend, I started to feel ill and although I didn’t need the attention of the doctor, I did feel sorry for myself and longed for my own bed. There’s nothing like your own bed when you feel under the weather is there?
We did manage to visit a few places towards the end of our stay. We drove to Port Soller and caught the little train from there to Soller. It was a lovely experience travelling through orange groves behind the houses on the sides of the tracks.
In Soller, we stopped to have lunch and enjoyed this wonderful view of the church.
We also went to Palma, where we all marvelled again at the wonderful cathedral standing guard over the entrance to the city and towering over the ships in the port.
The evenings were lovely and much cooler, ideal for a walk down to the bay. We found a nice little place where we could sit and have a drink and watch the sunset.
We are home and all feeling much better. The baby had a sore throat for a few days and I had a few days in bed shaking and shivering, but recovering, thanks to the antibiotics prescribed by my doctor for my swollen throat. We all loved Majorca and the area around Camp de Mar it is so peaceful and unspoilt – I hope it stays that way. In the words of someone famous “We will be back”…………..
