From Ian. Trip largely over now just a matter of drying out. As you might have gathered trip from Mahon to Colom on Mallorca was quiet exciting. We were caught in two big thunderstorms both of which hit the local papers. Although missed the 3cm hailstones we did get the 40 litres of rain per square metre in 30 minutes- whatever that means. The sting in the tail of the trip was the second storm as we entered Colom in the dark. Not a trip one wants to repeat too often. ...

... up and therefore lovely places do not benefit from cruisers who like to anchor.
We found a lovely cove where there was a tributary which we took up. We thought we'd be the only ones there but sadly soon another yacht joined us. Because of the narrowness of the tributary we dropped our kedge anchor.
In the evening enjoyed another wonderful sunset and BBQ and listened to the sound of cicadas slowing softening with the loss of sunlight.
