Thursdays Ride from Algaida

A ride from Algaida

After a group photo by the pool we said goodbye to Martin and Sue. Whilst they headed for the airport we set off a little later in the van for Algaida. Today's ride was on the back roads from Algaida to Llucmajor then on  to the small port of s'Estanyol de Mijorn.
We have had a couple of meals in the Restaurants Es Mollet on previous trips to the Island and Es Mollet is an excellent place for lunch. We stopped first in the square at Llucmajor and whilst we enjoyed our cafe con leche sympathised with Martin and Sue who arrived at the airport to find because of problems with French Air traffic control their flight had not left Manchester.

It was then about 18 miles to the s'Estanyol de Migiorn. We arrived at 2:00pm.The restaurant was open and servings food until 4:00pm but had become more popular so we had to sit inside. We had an excellent value tasty 3 course meal with a bottle of wine for 10 Euros pp.The wine was not finished as we still had 22 miles to cycle back. We returned to Llucmajor on the Cami de son Muro. No signs of tortoises this year. We were to full from lunch to stop for an ice cream so continued back to Algaida. We made the mistake of following the signs to the centre as they took you twisting and turning around lots of minor roads and then stopped. After a couple if wrong turns we found the centre and then located the van. As we were driving back we had the message Martin and Sue had just landed in Manchester .No prizes for guessing who had the better day.
