NCL's flag on Jade. Note the Spanish spelling of Mallorca on the hotel next to the flag.
Palma de Mallorca is our last port of call. We will walk the city and enjoy a day of relative tranquility, as compared to all others.
Mallorca brings in just about everything
Yacht transporter brings in the play toys. Please excuse Pop Pop's fascination with this never-before-witnessed service.
Transporter had eight or nine yachts on board
Maneuvering to the pier
How do they get these things off of there?
They float them off, dummy
Owners save on gas and probably begin their trips closer to where they will spend their time.
Yachts big and small
Unusual looking transporter
Ah ha...a Gallactica car & people ferry
We disembark and walking around the City for the day; we've had our fill of heavy duty sightseeing
Being a Saturday in June, the City was nearly deserted while most everyone made for the shore or the mountains
Passeig des 'Born
Early morning window washing
Walking the city...looking for department store
El Corte Ingles
On top of the department store having snacks...
La Seu Catedral in distance (we were done with cathedrals)
Huge foods mall (Mercat de l'Olivar) with an escalator
Europeans like their cured meats
Little squares everywhere.
This is Place Mare de Deu de la Salut.
Make a donation in the jar...and watch what happens
I wouldn't have wanted to be the makeup artist
San Miguel Square with crafts
Fluteing to the audience
Wonderful old Europe narrow passageways.
Nailed to church of...
Interesting corner feature
There were few people about, but what a relief from the throngs we experienced elsewhere
The world's most disfigured tree
Majorica took the day off from selling its famous cultured pearls, but Kaila did find a photo shop to print and frame a few photos for home
I think Europe is "Greener" than America... they were into small cars long before us... to navigate narrow passageways, of course :)
Iglesia Monte Sion
Vendor and Kaila check each other out
Nearing the end of winding our way back to the port and return to Jade
