Viva Espagne!

Our lovely Majorcan villa, tucked among the lemon trees


No Paula posts for an entire week?! What is my blog coming too! I must apologise to you for the lack of All Bear updates, but about a week ago, the time came for this bear maker to quietly slip her moorings and head for warmer climes. So, in the wee small hours of that Saturday morning, I struggled bleary-eyed, to ready myself for a much anticipated and well-earned holiday on the island of Majorca and that's where I have been tucked away, ever since!

Posing at the Marina, Puerto Pollensa



Enjoying an after dinner stroll along the sea front, at Puerto Pollensa


A romantic jetty restaurant, dinner for two, a beautiful view

We have had such a lovely time! The weather has been fabulous, our villa delightful, the local scenery breathtakingly mountainous (particularly one hair-raising drive through those mountains! Gulp!) the restaurants al fresco with extensive menus and delicious food. All in all, a perfect getaway!

A wonderfully balmy evening by the sea

The magic of Puerto Pollensa at twilight


View over the roof tops

Lovely local pottery shop

Getting arty with the camera whilst having coffee in the Town Square!

About to climb the 365 steps to the Calvari Church

At the top, the tiny Calvari church

Fabulous views across the town from the church

Taking in the view across Pollensa town - looking slightly vertiginous!

Breathtaking mountain views, en route to Formentor

Taking in the sheer drop behind the wall!


Stunning view from the Formentor mountain road

Feeling very aware of the sheer drop behind me!

Beautiful turquoise sea at Cala san Vicente

Now that I've unpacked and ploughed through the holiday laundry, it's time to put my bear-making head back on again and I must admit, I feel wonderfully refreshed and raring to get back to work, but not before I've taken a moment to share a few of my Majorcan holiday snaps with you.
I do hope you enjoy them!

What lovely photos, it looks like you had a great time. I have some fond memories of a holiday in Majorca and remember taking a drive through the mountains and feeling like I was on set of The Italian Job!
It looks as though you brought the weather back! Hope it lasts.
Hugs Ginie :-)
