Palma

Hello...

I spent last week in Palma ... It was far too hot for me ...  DH loves the heat but not me...
The first day I was so miserable, my head ached, my tummy ached and I couldn't find any respite from the heat. 
I met Sid the seagull who came everyday to the hotel in search of a free meal...


... How I wished I'd had wings to fly away to somewhere cooler...
Fortunately my DH took pity on me and took me off to the beach where the sea air was fresh and a constant breeze put a smile back on my face as the sun and the sea turned my skin to a golden brown ... I found a special spot under this Palm tree


Over a few days we became best friends


Life is good at the beach ...

We did meet quite a few Americans on the island ... Some had travelled for 36 hours from Pennsylvania 

 Now though I've said goodbye to Sid ... he was sad


Goodbye to the lovely shaded street cafes in the city of Palma


To the designer shops with pretty windows



Even with that 30% discount the prices were crazy ... But I did spot this set I thought my blog friend Sue Lelli would LOVE ... it's just her colour


Sorry I couldn't buy it Sue ...
And what about this gold Eagle collar/necklace ...


There was a matching wrist cuff to this ... I dread to think how much this would cost ... they even had security guards on the door!

Thankfully for my husband I'm not into designer goods ... I like what I like, labels don't come into it ... And I much preferred this bicycle


...and the shop interior to the goods on sale


So for now I'm content to be home where my heart is ... with my kitties and my son and my craft supplies ... Catching up with my friends here and in Blogland and baking recipes from Pinterest like this (now half eaten) raspberry and cream cheese coffee cake


It's delicious and the recipe can be found Here

I hope you are having a lovely day ... I'll be back tomorrow 

Keep safe

What beautiful pictures from Palma and one lucky sea gull, Ros! I do have to ask, why would it take 36 hours to get from Pennsylvania to Palma? Inspite of the headaches and too warm, I hope you are rested. As for the shops and their prices...what with the price of food so high, who could really afford to buy except for the rich? Window shopping is always the best I guess. Have a fabulous Monday and enjoy being home with your cats again!

I am sorry to hear that you have a headache on your vacation, however, the beach scene is well worth it, especially with your cute friend Sid. Thanks for taking us along for the window shopping too. Your coffee cake sure looks yummy!

Lovely shots from a fab holiday Ros, glad you had a great time (despite the high temperatures). Shake hands, I'm not into brands either, as a matter of fact I'm quite opposed to them, lol! Prefer something really original ;-)

It's always so nice to go out on a stroll with you... I very much prefer the bike over the eagle necklace, too! My vacation is coming up, too - FINALLY. Will be leaving for the airport later today...

I can sympathize with your dislike of the heat. It's been scorching here for weeks. The humidity makes it even worse. So glad you shared your lovely photos. I always like to "travel" with you. :-) Hugs and welcome home!

Looks like a lovely place to be, heat and all!! I am so glad you had such a wonderful time, maybe you should have taken Sid home with you though....he could of entertained the kitties!! I am sure you are glad to be home, always fun to go away a bit, but truly, there is "no place like home"!!
