Walkies in Calviá

DSC_3813

Everybody who knows a little about Mallorca, knows that this is a place where many hikers and cyclists come to do some exercises during spring and autumn (but mainly in springtime when the weather still is shit in the northern hemisphere).

DSC_3804This fine December day a whole gang of us set of to Calviá for a nice leisurely walk.

Hmmmm, where does this road lead…?

DSC_3822

Part of it leads to Ses Planes, which is a stud farm.

And part of it leads to the mountains. Of course.

On the way we passed plenty of animals. Goats…

Pigs…

Sheep…

One of the participants brought a sprightly young hound, only 7 months old and full of beans!

DSC_3849The gang was all fired up and ready for a brisk walk.

But first one had to check out the sheep – or at least the dog did…

We passed a beautiful Roman-ish style building with a nice old fashion courtyard.

So beautiful.

Even the mud knows how to look good 🙂

At the end of the day we ended up in the lovely restaurant of Méson C’an Torrat. It’s situated in Calvía and owned by a man who used to be a toreador. Now, I hate bull fights, but since this happened a long time ago, I can actually enjoy all the pretty posters and pictures that adorn the place. Aparantly his son is a celebrated cyclist, so this is a very popular hang-out for the two wheeled community.

There is no way one can miss that the guy was once a celebrated torero. He is plastered all over the walls. Besides the total ambience, the food was brilliant! Yummmmiiieee. Méson C’an Torrat is well worth an extra trip.

The two cronies Don Pelle and Don Frallito kept themselves in a secret corner and only God knows what they were talking about…

Pretty Victoria soon lost interest in the ”old-guy-conversation” and hung out with me instead.

That was in December, right around Christmas time. And this is what Mallorca looks like now. Spring has finally arrived, temperatures are soaring and my garden is going bananas.

Hasta la próxima.
