Jim & Elaine arrived here in Port D' Andratx, Majorca on the 30th Aug & Dennis & Issy arrived on the 3rd Sept after a traumatic start to the trip (which we won't talk about) except to say they turned up at Edinburgh Airport a day late for thier flight!! At 'great expense' and a trip to Newcastle Airport in a hired car, eventually all was well. Made the most of the waiting tme to see a bit of Majorca and enjoy the lovely hot weather. Lovely Island and the old town of Palma is so full of character and great to walk around and soak up the atmosphre. Also took a rickety old tourist train to Soller on the west coast of the island for a day and enjoyed that too.
Waiting for a Freezer man today to fix dodgy freezer (now been and all is well) and a weather window tomorrow (looking good) and we are off at the crack of a sparrows fart for a (possibly) 3 night crossing to Scily.
