Santa Ponsa Mallorca. 25th Wedding Anniversary.
April 15th - May 10th 2004.

We celebrated 25 years of marriage with a visit to Deia on the north of Mallorca, lunch on the beach and dinner in the village. The Altwasser grandparents visited Santa Ponsa on April 26th. They looked relaxed when we said farewell 2 weeks later. We hired a car during their holiday, took them on board Bingo for lunch three times,
into the bay twice, to Palma, Fornalutz in the mountains, Porto Vells (a beautiful bay), Peguera and Camp de Mar, another attractive bay. We also went together to Inca and a leather goods factory, to Islettes, Valdemosa and the northern coast road, Andratx and the hills either side. So we will soon earn our ticket as tour guides.

We have also got to know a number of other crews, some staying in Santa Ponsa, some heading West and some heading in our direction, so we have had hardly a day in the last two weeks without meeting up for drinks or a meal with other cruisers. Now we wait for a westerly wind.
