Mallorca-Part Two





We were determined 
to take in the 
city
 of 
Palma 
like the locals on a day off..
shopping, eating, and
wandering with complete abandon...









so we stopped for lunch at a little bistro
opposite this gorgeous tree..
just salad and wine..

and watched the people passing by...

it was lovely to soak in the moment..

enjoying every delicious minute..








and then we wandered aimlessly
searching only for beauty and to be focused
on whatever we found..

which was an amazing museum..







and while we did not go inside
we marveled at the courtyard and the museum shop..








The museum shop was housed in here
below...

and it was pretty magnificent..








next up..
we stumbled upon this glorious church...
and I am a sad tour guide, because I did not write down the name
of the church... 








but it was stunning...









I felt a great sense of peace...







unlike some churches...

and the tiny stoned walkway outside was lovely...








and the last sight to catch my eye..
close to the end of the day,
was this
verdant park with fountains...







we were so delighted with so many beautiful sights...







X marks the spot again...







a very good spot for reflection..
and for basking in the sun...








I hope you enjoyed the tour..
I just have one more place to show you..

but next week I will have some sneaky peeks 
from my new show

The Naturalists' Notebook

and I hope you stop back then..

Palma is beautiful. Everything you shared was stunning. I was impressed with the church with its palm tree and candles that were so different, and the beautiful architecture. I was also impressed with the museum, loving those heads outside. Then you captured the beauty of the fountains and greenery for a simply stunning end to the day. I am truly impressed with both your photos and your thoughts as you took us with you on this leg of your trip.
