After spending two days since leaving Palma on Friday mostly motoring up the spectacular west side of Majorca ( mountain range the whole way) with an overnight stop in Soller on Saturday we have been anchored in Cale Murta on the east side of Formentor peninsula. ( of The Night Manager film fame ) Beautiful turquoise water still only 14 degrees but a good anchorage though tonight a little rolly. We did try and go to another bay today but still early in the season mooring buoys were not out yet and decided we shouldn't anchor as bottom weed and last year we got chased twice for anchoring in sea grass so have spent two nights here. Tomorrow we set of for Menorca hopefully the wind will have changed because if we'd gone across today 'wind on the nose' .

On Saturday we stopped for lunch in Cale Foradada where we had been told there was a hut where you could get paella. Sadly we were too late as kitchens were just closing . We had hoped might be open in the evening and we would then have overnighted there but not to be. So lunch on board and there was a spectacular hole through the rock to see. We then stopped overnight in the bay at Soller and found paella there for supper and bought some more fishing tackle - not that we've caught anything yet!
Sunday we decided to set off and stop for breakfast on board at another Cala that had been recommended. Cala de la Calobra. . Spectacular with high sides and a small beach at the end where apparently the Torrente de Pareis enters the sea. (Usually a stream). A good breakfast stop and the number of jelly fish were impressive.

We then carried on motoring north think we got half an hours sail at one point but not a lot of wind to round Cabo de Formentor before entering the Cala we are now in.

Today we took the dinghy ashore and walked to the other side to see where we'd come from.
