The rain in Spain

An excellent meal at Stay on Thursday evening. Good service and pleasant company. We did not have to resort to hiding a broken plate under a napkin but Martin did go off to "gste crash" a 70th birthday celebration.

Fillets of fresh sardines, prawns and aubergine in a light batter

Special desert of the day

The television weather forecast on Thursday evening for Friday showed the only rain in Spain not on the plain but over Mallorca. Unfortunately it turned out to be correct. It had rained overnight and light rain started when we were having breakfast and continued until late afternoon. A trip out was made for for provisions, books were read and knitting done. After lunch Martin and Sue headed off to the bird reserve for a bit of orchid spotting. The rain got a little heaver in Puerto Pollenca so Robert and Lyn took the van to the post office. The one-way streets were negotiated but the the post office had moved since our last visit 2 years ago.
Google maps found the new location for us and helpfully told us it was now shut until Saturday morning.
We returned to the apartment put on our waterproofs and cycled into town to buy some postcards. By 4:00 pm the rained stopped and the sky started to clear. We went back to the appartment changed into our cycling waterproofs and set of a ride round the back roads to Alcudia. A round trip of just over 20 miles. As we turned for home the rain started again and continued long enough for Lyn to stop and put her waterproof jacket on.
We got back to the smell if fresh rosemary from the lamb "Massanella" cooking in the oven.

Another excellent meal was enjoyed after which we say down to the final showing this holiday of the "Weetabix Movie"
