Palma de Mallorca – Mallorca, Spain – Travel Photography

November 22, 2011

For a last hurrah in Spain, we took a long weekend and went to Mallorca for my birthday.  Mallorca is one of the islands of the Eastern coast of Spain, in the Mediterranean Sea.  We stayed in Palma, the capital.  On the first day, we just walked around the streets of Palma…

This area overlooking the water by the cathedral is really beautiful.

You had to pay to go into the cathedral – we normally bugger off if you have to pay but we decided we should at least see some things – however, we only had a card and of course, seeing as how we were in Spain, they wouldn’t take it, even though they had a card machine. Poop on them.  But the outside of the cathedral was pretty enough for me.

As the sun set, we walked away from the city center in search for our hotel.

And we got some pretty spectacular views.

The next day, we rented a car and headed south to find the beaches.

We drove through many a little town.

Here we found a lighthouse and the surrounding beach had stacked stones just like we saw along the Camino de Santiago.

All along the island are these cute windmill things.  You can see them as you land.

We spent hours driving around looking for a pink sand beach that our friends Richelle & Luis told us about.  Sadly, we never did find it.  But we found, first this one on the left, which was a private little alcove beach, and then this one on the right.  The one on the right was my favorite.  It was soooooo pretty with the surrounding cliffs.  You could even walk out on them.

It really wasn’t quite warm enough to get in the water or sunbathe, which made me kinda sad, but it was nice to just sit out in the sand and listen to the water.  The crazies that you see here are Germans and Northern Europeans – people who can really tolerate the cold!

On the third day, we drove east to find caves that I saw brochures for.  These are the Cuevas del Drach.  They say that these caves hold the largest underground lake.  The tour takes about an hour.  You walk through and marvel at all the stalactites and stalagmites and then at the end, you see a little classical music boat performance.  Its pricey but totally worth.  I was really amazed!

Afterwards, we headed back to Palma to see the Castle. We didn’t make it in time to go in but we got to see a beautiful sunset over the city.

Sadly, this is the last post from our European travels :( We are all settled into Savannah now.  It feels strange but good.  Hopefully though, we will continue to hop around the country photographing people and visiting people! In fact, Thursday, we are spending Thanksgiving in GA with Martin’s family, then driving to NC to spend a second Thanksgiving with mine.  Then we will be roadtripping it up to Boston and then over to The Poconos, PA so if you wanna see us or schedule a portrait session, email me!!!

I wish everyone an excellent Thanksgiving with lots of loving family time!
