Getaway to Mallorca, continued...

As you could see in the photos I previously posted, the weather was gorgeous. We are talking 26° C during the day, and I think it was something like 15° C in the evenings. Still a bit cool, but not too cold.

This is the cathedral of Palma.

One of the few remaining wind mills, that used to be very numerous on the island.

As I mentioned, there is some wonderful architecture in Palma. This, by the way, is not a church. A civil building.

There are quite a few beautiful examples of Art Nouveau buildings in Palma.

 More architectural details.

Love the shabby chic look of these. These are part of the bull fighting arena - the Coliseo Balear. Situated in the city.

The south tower of the arena.

A bit more of the arena.

And even more. This was the reason we were there. A television show that took place "live in Mallorca" last Sunday.

See that little basket at the top of the crane? That was where Max was. At work.

What a wonderful soul soothing little vacation!! It looks like the islands were strongly influenced by the Moorish culture. What amazing and incredible beauty came from the blending of cultures!!

Well now that you mention it, that does look like Max waaaaay up there!!! :)

Renate, what gorgeous pictures. My favorite is of the incredible archway...oh my goodness, it is so beautiful - especially with the angel above the doorway. Wow, Max is a brave man working up so high!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today...I'm fine, tho my back has made it hard to get to the studio.

Tell Max to be careful. That looks dangerous, beautiful place though.
