An early start.

The alarm was set for 3 am but we awoke before it went off. A quick shower a bowl of porridge and were off to the airport.  The meet and greet was efficient and just a short walk to the terminal. The bike boxes gently glided to the check in. There was no problem with the size but we just got a standard luggage allowance for them as we had not checked them as a bike. After the bags were weighed we had to take them to an special desk for large luggage.
The flight was just over 2 hours.  There had been some early morning fog at Palma but it had cleared before we took off. Our cases were one of the first off the conveyor and we then had so go to a different area to collect the bike boxes. We had to wait sbout 10 minutes but then much to our surprise 2 pristine bike boxes appeared. .
Whilst we were waiting we played spot the bike box? Bike box Alan's, an evoc soft case, large hard suit cases etc.

We collected our van put the case  inside and then we to the parking cafeteria for a coffee and Tortilla baguette.  Decathlon in Palma was closed so R could not get new sunglasses but Lidel in Inca was open until 3 so we were able to stock up with provisions before continuing to Porta Pollensa. 
After assembling the bikes we had time for a quick swim in the pool before cycling to Pollensa for an ice cream from the stall in the main square. That made us thirsty some we wandered to a cafe at the bottom Calvario steps  for a beer.
Margtetta  and Peter came round  in the evening.
We paid them for the apartment and had a pleasant surprise when they returned 10 minutes later as we had over paid them by £53. We had to try and remember the balance and Lyn had reversed the last 2 digits . The saving will be spent on a meal at Stay.
