Tuesday 17th May   We have discovered an excellent chandlery - a bit like Arkwight's store - on the marina and have paid several visits! Having shopped for fresh food, we left Santa Eularia for Cala San Vincente, an anchorage about 9 miles North, for an overnight stop before crossing to Mallorca.The day was sunny and warm, so D had a swim and we had a relaxing afternoon reading in the cockpit. The cove is quite small but with a nice beach but also a couple of uninspiring hotels, from which we were 'treated' to the disco music and a salsa class on the beach. During the night thw wind shifted, making the swell more uncomfortable, so we we were glad it was only for one night.
Wednesday 18th May.   Motored all the way to Santa Ponsa on Mallorca, through a headwind and some swell. The wind would have given excellent sailing if we hadn't wished to arrive that day in Mallorca. Several sightings of dolphins along the way but these have been more intent on feeding than playing in our bow-wave. Anchored in Cala Santa Ponsa overnight but the forecast is for some rain and stronger winds, so will have to monitor the situation and see if it prompts us to find a marina berth somewhere.
