A mixed forecast of sunny intervals and thunder storms. Decided to cycle from the appartment taking the back roads to Campanet. We then climbed the hill to Mosari hoping to get a tapas in a bar we had discovered on a previous trip to the island.Unfortunately tapas were not being served so after a beer we cycled the 7 miles to Muro to visit a pastelaria we had visited previously. The coffee was good as we remembered and we each had a Panada (Meat pie with peas). Just as we were finishing the rain started. Not reliashing 20 miles in the rain we opted for a cake and another coffee inside. An excellent decision as the rain was bouncing off the rain. After the best part of an hour the rain looked like stopping so we decidrd to head back to Port de Pollenca taking the back road to sa Pobla and then going back via Campanet. Despite the black clouds the rain held off. The only part of us that got wet was our bottoms and backs caused by the lack of mudguards and the spray coming of the road. Having got we set off to the local supermarket to get something for tea to find it had shut at lunch time! Fortunately we had plenty of provisions and we able to rustle up a potato omelette for tea.
