Jellyfish and British Bars: Day 3 Mallorca Continued

As I mentioned in my other post, we were pretty sunburnt and tired by day 3 in Mallorca.

Our walk to the Marina was perfect because it got us outside to enjoy the beautiful weather but we weren’t directly being pounded by the sun.  The scenery was breathtaking so here are some more pics from our walk:

I love how the airplane line and the cross match up in this photo

The view (+ my shoulder)

When we arrived at the Marina, we found ourselves at the area closest to the sea where most of the boats were small and probably belonged to locals.  As we got further in though, the boats started getting much bigger!

Nicest boats! (Notice the Yacht Club? So jealous)

After visiting the yachts, we took a walk back through the center of town.  We passed a gym on the way that looked like something out of the 80s.

Banana-hammocks & bikinis at the gym!!

Feeling that there was more discover at the beach than what we had seen the previous day, Edouard and I decided to take a walk along the rocks : )

Makes you want to take a swim, don’t it?

Of course, we soon decided that it was time to take a quick swim.

However, our plans were soon interrupted when I saw something big and black in the water…

Good thing we go out, because it wasn’t long until we were inundated by little mini blue ones!

jellies

We had no choice after that, so we stayed on the beach and relxed… we got an umbrella this time to protect us from the sun though…

At sunset, we headed back to the Marina for some yummy seafood.  I got stuffed clams (not exactly what I was expecting but delicious just the same) and Edouard got … fish? Not really sure what kind though haha I think swordfish but I could be wrong.  We also tried octopus!! (see my other post)

mmm!!!

When we had finished our meal, we set out along the Marina in search of a nice place to sit and have a cocktail.  We ended up finding a British bar called “Smugglers.”  The deco was really cool and the ambiance was just what we were looking for.  It was the perfect way to end a perfect day.
