This is what we were waiting for, the days when ‘normal’ returned to the Soller Valley. This turned out to be more than normal and absolutely overflowing and crowded with all who had missed our Valley. Second home owners, returning Soller families, trippers from other parts of the island, were all here. Traffic jams, every day, from the port to the entrance to the Soller Tunnel as local visitors all went home. The atmosphere was joyful and only marred by the return of local pickpockets who were also glad to back amongst the crowds.
