The weather continues to be sunny, but rather cool. Nightime lows are close to freezing even on the shore here, but it is nice and warm in the sunshine in the afternoons. Today we met with friends to walk around the bird sanctuary in s’Albufera close to Port d’Alcudia where we spent a couple of winters on our sailboat. There were not many birds there, but we enjoyed the walking and then had pizza and cake on our patio.
Klaus and Ulrike are visiting us this week, and the weather has been fantastic. Sheila and Ulrike took a hike around Lluc today with a neighbour of ours, and Klaus and I met them at the monastery for a nice, long and very filling lunch afterwards. The lunch was so strenuous that Klaus had to go for a swim afterwards, the others abstained as the water temperature right now is only 16 degrees Celsius.
We returned to Mallorca and my recovery is progressing well. I walk about 10,000 steps a day, but am not allowed to drive or lift anything heavy, so Sheila is busy supporting me. Next week I plan to add physiotherapy to my rehabilitation program. The weather has been mixed, but today we are enjoying brilliant sunshine and more than 20 degrees on our patio.
We have had a week of stormy and rainy weather here in Mallorca, but today the sun came back out. Sheila and I went for a long walk along along the beach and around the harbour, very enjoyable! Unfortunately, for tomorrow the forecast is for more rain, great for the water reservoirs that have risen by about 6 meters.
We came to Mallorca a few days ago, with my parents and Ulrike. Andrea met us at the airport and today Jessica and her family joined us. Of course (almost) everyone had to go for a swim in the ocean. The weather is a bit cool and windy, but good enough to spend time on the beach and enjoy icecream in the evening.
