Delivery of earth
Noticed Nostalgia had its pile of earth delivered outside (under a leafless tree)!

I know - Having looked at a few I have decided I prefer the look of Accuweather 😉😉😉 ( ever the optimist )

I've never visited Sant Antoni, but there's one thing that never ceases to amaze me - some of the bonfires look so incredibly close to buildings! Looking at some of Sparky's photos I can see that some of the bonfires are pretty well stocked up with large tree trunks etc., and the heat generated must be huge. Does the paintwork etc on the buildings ever get damaged/blistered?
Anyway, one day I may come over and see it for myself. Enjoy yourselves out there, and hope the weather doesn't put too much of a damper on proceedings

Exactly what I was thinking Quite amazing large bonfires close to buildings !!

One day we may come out for it as well

Fingers crossed for the weather

Sparky 17-01-2017 11:05

The weather has not been kind to Sant Antoni, although it was mostly dry last night the wind got up making the fires a bit risky. Because of the extremely high wind and very rough sea the tree is not coming by boat but will be brought over on a lorry from Formentor.

I am confined to barracks with the lurgy but Mr S took these photos of the fires last night :-

Thanks to Mr S for taking the photos.

Hope you're better soon, Sparky.

Sparky 17-01-2017 11:58

Thank you Mike :).

copper 17-01-2017 12:51

Sorry you had to miss it all Sparky but Thank you for the photos

Even there the weather lets you down on special occasions !

Sparky 17-01-2017 13:25

Thank you Copper, i am really miffed not to be out in the thick of it all but it would be foolish to go out, the weather is really awful and i can't believe they are still doing the tree climbing :eek:.

LK1960 17-01-2017 15:18

Thanks for the great photos, looks amazing - would love to make it over some day. Sorry to hear you're ill Lyn, know how much you love Sant Antoni. Hope you feel better soon.

Sparky 17-01-2017 15:27

Thanks LK.
I feel sorry for those who have come out just for the fiesta, the weather gods have been unkind this year but it seems to have gone off really well generally, the tree has been climbed without any injuries......i hope :).
