The entrance to Puerto Sòller
Our Australian acquaintances were also in the port overnight 
Puerto Sòller would be one of the most picturesque ports in all of the Balearic Islands

We tie up at the fishing boat wharf in order to have a mechanic look at one of our engines which on occasions refuses to start
A young man called Tomi came to our rescue and attempted to rectify the problem
Once the motors were checked and few washers were replaced, all appeared to function well, so we return to the large bay in the harbour
We join the large number of boats on anchor in the southern part of the sheltered bay
Numerous day trip sailing boats take passengers out for the day to explore the wonderful bays nearby
The old wooden trams which are very popular with visitors, follow the foreshore and then continue past farms and orchards to arrive at the town of Sòller
In most parts of the Balearic Islands nudity in public on boats, even in busy harbours is very common…..after a while one becomes used to it!!!
Puerto Sòller which is shaped like a horseshoe, is situated at the foot of the mountain range called Serra de Tramuntana
Although Puerto Sòller is a busy bay the water in the harbour is quite clear and swimming around the bay and the beach area is very popular

An attractive new Discovery 58 yacht anchors nearby
The owners Sergio and Heluisa and her visiting brother Paulo, all from Brazil, kindly invite us aboard for a drink

We repay their hospitality by asking our new Brazilian friends to join us for dinner
Ric fires up the barbecue and cooks us some nice fillet steaks for dinner!!
