September 15th, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

Every August 31st we treat ourselves to a night on shore to celebrate our anniversary.  Prior anniversaries have been spent in picturesque and popular places such as Corfu.  In 2012 we were on Mallorca in the Spanish Balaeric Islands and spent our anniversary in the idyllic walled city of Alcudia.

The Alcudia walls were necessary fortifications when constructed. . .

but narrow streets. . .

with outdoor cafes. . .

and ornate buildings like the Town Hall make it a special place indeed.

Finding the right mix of budget friendly luxury for our anniversary involves lots of on-line research which is half the fun.  This year’s choice was Can’ Pere within the walls of the ancient city.

The entrance to Can' Pere is unassuming. . .

but inside the dining room. . .

and courtyard are tastefully decorated with modern touches.

Can’ Pere has only six or seven rooms and it’s primary attraction is the restaurant that occupies the dining room and courtyard during the lunch and dinner hours.  The rooms, which are up a rather steep set of stairs are each unique and tastefully furnished with luxurious linens–perfect for a romantic rendezvous.

Our room at Can' Pere was charming. . .

with modern appointments set against the backdrop of ancient stone walls.

Oh yes, and for me the piece d’ resistance was a bathtub.  It also happened to be in only hotel in the area that would accept a dog–which Jolie greatly appreciated.

After touring the maze of streets within the walled city and taking a leisurely nap, it was time for dinner in the garden courtyard.

I got a view of the softly lit courtyard. . .

while Kent's view was of me, and the wall of course. . .ever the gentleman.

This was our ninth anniversary, and we look forward to many more.  The only question is where will the next one be?  Somewhere exotic, if I have my way.
