Despite some snow in the Mallorcan mountains some ten days ago, there was no snow over Christmas, here.
Instead, we enjoyed the most gloriously sunny weather yesterday, a weather pattern that somehow seems to be a quite regular occurrence in these Mediterranean regions over Christmas, something that the locals call el verano pequeño (the little Summer).
Just as I had predicted in my blog entry on December 18th, Christmas Day yesterday was warm and sunny.
We had a nice walk on the beach, exactly as we had wished for. We walked from the Banys de Sant Joan de Sa Font Santa (hot springs) near Campos past the Salinas del Trenc (salt fields) to the Platja d’es Trenc and all the way to Sa Rapita. This is a tour that makes for a nice three-hour walk – there and back – at any time of the year, in case you want to have a go.
The white mountains in my picture are the salt mountains near the salt fields. Salt, not snow.
The photo was taken near Ses Salines, Mallorca, Spain. The date: December 25th, 2007. The time was 13:43:37.
