Mallorca: Food, Cannons, Cars, Views

(Edited)

A selection of recent photos taken on the beautiful island of Mallorca.

Let's go to the beach.... Like everyone else in Cala Millor. The photo below was taken yesterday morning following a visit to the post office and a friends shop. The beach looks full but compared to previous years there is still room for plenty more towels. It's good to see the tourists here though, local businesses desperately need the income.

A few weeks ago we visited a cala not too far away from my current home town. Less people, clearer water, yes please.

20210729_130247.jpg

I'm currently looking for an apartment on the otherside of the island. The choice seems to be more space (3 times more) or a sea view. I think, although no final decision has been made, that I'm going to opt for more space this next year - it would only be a 5/10 minute cycle/car journey to the beach, and in a few months the water will cool and not be so inviting. I'd like to buy an Elliptical and a half decent keyboard, and so space for those would be nice.

Baileys on the rocks, but was this the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd? 😁

The above taken in the town of Magaluf, which is nothing like the crazy boozefest of years gone by. Although there is still a frequent smell of weed and plenty of guys offering you various drugs.

A few weekends ago I had to hit the brakes quiet hard as a motorway exit junction on a blind bend was backed right up. The metal on metal crunching sound freaked me right out, but I concluded one of the brake pads was worn out and the car would not combust at any moment.

150 euros later, a new front-left pad was fitted and my car is as good as new - as new as 2006 Ford Focus with 150,000 on the clock anyway.

We mentioned to the mechanic that we were now going for lunch. He recommended and then booked us a table at a nearby restaurant, which if we both loved rare meat would have been perfect.

This was taken during a fairly long walk to a cala near Port d'Andratx. Next time I think I'll take the speedboat.....

20210718_145240.jpg

And from the cala....

20210718_151812.jpg

Back to Sa Punta de n’Amer last weekend for a long walk on the rocks, and a couple of 'I bet no-one has taken a photo like this before' photos.

Stand on the drawbridge and look sexy...

20210815_124751.jpg

And a couple more views to finish. Swimming in the moonlight is awesome, a great way to finish a warm summers day.

Y buenas noches...

I hope you are all having a great weekend,

Asher

been seriously looking into Panama. just looking for the best place to make our money go the farthest. and crypto-friendly. yada yada yada hehehe

i see you have some more mallorca "life" posts - gonna definitely check them out and see what you're doing there hehehe

i've been looking around to see where people are thriving from the crypto community but people are kinda quiet about those things - or... maybe i'm just not looking in the right places hehe

but see? its post like these where random conversations bring more light ! LOL so... thanks! :)

Panama is home to a couple of steem Hive OGs so it should certainly be considered to make your crypto go furthest. Spain is not great for that, Portugal which is next door is better.

I think it is prudent to stay quiet about gains, I'm sure plenty of Hive folk have had a very solid year so far. I'm holding on for a big Christmas period, but do feel it is time to convert some to fiat to get some bricks.

These personal posts are much better for random chit-chat, I'd like to do more both for the banter and to boost what's in the pot 😄

well - i have always said the magic is in the comment section hahaha

posts are great fun - and you might get a peek or two at the content (but we know most is autovoted these days - and I'm not against that in the least - as a matter of fact - I use it and support it! haha)

but when I get to interact with people in the comment section - that's where it really matters to me!

and - you probably know this since i got #3 on your engagement league last week - woooot. my highest ever hahaha

I might come grab some advice from you here and there in your posts/comment section hehehe

nothing too personal -just would love to hear from real live people on things that i can't seem to find info on from real live people LOL

Good to see you mate... you both honestly look great, obviously the sea air and chill vibes are treating you well.

Great photos - my life couldn't be any more opposite (we're so far inland in the forest) so it's great to sea the ocean and a glimpse into your life. Thanks!

I am also inland, but not in the forest. I live in a dead end village in the northern great plain region of Hungary. We do not even have sea.

I think space is more important than ocean view, especially when it takes virtually no time at all to get to the beach. So good choice on that, and having a visitors room would be good a place when your daughter visits she can kind of claim.

Thanks for commenting on that point, the decision between the two options has been taking a lot of thought.

I think I will go for the space, visitors and especially my daughter would be no problem then.

Magaluf was a ghosttown back then, I guess the british invasion is back?

Caramba!!!
How just 3 pics can tell the whole story about your "limited" presence here lately.
Haven't been really active for quite a while either. But, to be honest: for far less legitimate reasons than you. ;-

Wish you (both) luck en enjoy mate.

Drawbridge photo, yup she stole the show, cannon all dolled up for fun...

Island life suits you well, hope you find a larger space to rent and enjoy, being an island sure you never far from any beach in any direction....

Sharing the scenery you make one wish to travel, soon Asher.

This is awesome, you certainly look a hell of a lot happier living here than living in England! One of these days I’ll get to do the same, we are just getting things lined up to make the move! Don’t know what’s better the drawbridge or the cannon! Lol

Yeah, much happier, although that would not be difficult!

I hope you can get organised for a change of scenery soon enough. It's the cannon for me, although I might be going by some other photos I may have taken 😄

Lol oh I'm sure man!

The change of scenery hopefully won't be forced on us. Things tend to happen like that. We are in a sticky spot between things and just want to squeeze out another 8 months or so if we can before we say peace out!

I must admit I never saw that cannon everyone talks about... 😆

I'm envious since although I'm spaniard I've never been in Mallorca but can comfort myself by visiting other wonderful places we have all around.

Hope you both have a nice stay!
