Mid-Summer Hiatus

On Sunday night Team TF returned from a mid-summer hiatus to Spain.  Itinerary included 24 hours in Madrid and 4 days at Cap Rocat resort on the island of Mallorca.  Now back stateside (with our Spanish guitar streaming on pandora), we are totally re-energized and ready to finish out an exciting end to our summer!

Some snapshots from the trip…

Or for more aquatics there was also the pool option…

Each room had a private palapa facing the sea…

…and each morning a basket of delicious goodies was delivered to the room for breakfast on the palapa.

We mastered the art of relaxation…

…and staying hydrated.
