Majorca ...

 Here I am on holiday and back home in the UK the weather is glorious!
So ... I don't have much to share with you just a few photo's taken on my husbands fancy phone ... I have to wait till I get home to download the many others ... 
My brother is a keen photographer and has never been to the island so wants to see as much as he can ...  it's been quite hectic ...  the first day we set off for Palma ... to show them the magnificent cathedral 



With my SIl in the grounds of the cathedral ... can you see the horse drawn carriages behind us? and the beautiful marigolds ...




With my husband ...

The next day it was on to Santa Ponca ... of course I had to introduce my family to my tree ... the one that has sheltered me many times from the heat whilst waiting for the transport 

... And the next day we took the beautiful wooden train through the mountains to Soller ... where an equally beautiful tram took us to the port ...


Do you know these carriages came all the way from San Francisco? And this train begins it's journey in Palma ... actually running on tracks in the road along side the traffic ... it's a wonderful journey back in time ... the slogan the company use is "Our trains don't run ... they walk" and they are right ... an hour trip through mountains and orange groves ... 


You can tell that my brother loved this trip



Just a little part of my week ... 

Till soon

awww..... it is just a delightful way to start my sunday morning with fabulous photo of yours, love hearing from you and the trip.
Now I know why we click, I too have "my tree" in central park, the one that I cling on and cried my sorrow out during those new york city days....
