After another excellent meal at Stay
we could not have a leasurely start to the day as Martin and Sue had to leave at 8:30 to catch their flight.
Goodbyes were said and after a little debate we decided to cycle to Alaro but start from Santa Eugenia. The forecast had a strong possibility of rain in the afternoon and we decided that we could assess the situation in Alaro and decide if we should continue round the Orient. We cycled towards Consell and then on the Cami de Muro to Santa Maria by passing the main street to Ctra Santa Maria Alaro .We arrived in Alaro just after 12:00, Panaderia Ca Na Najuantanita in the main square was still open and we selected a vegetable pasty and pie for lunch. A second pie was required after Robert managed to spill the contents of his half on the floor when trying to photograph it. Checking the weather the forecast was rain a 15:00 so we decided to continue round the Orient. The first part of the climb is 5.2 km at an average of just over 5 percent. You then drop down into the Orient and then have another 120 metres to climb up the Col d'Honor. For our route that was the hard work done for the day as we then had a fast descent to Bunyola. The sky had darkened and rain was in the air so we continued onto Sant Maria and retraced our route back to Santa Eugenia. We continued a short distance past the van. The cakes in the first bar we passed were disappointing to we continued up the hill to the bar we had found earlier on the holiday and had a coffee each. The rain started to fall as we returned to the van. 90 euros solved the problem with the vans refuelling light. On arrived back in Puerto Pollenca we stopped at a Panaderia where Lyn selected some cakes to have with our afternoon cup of tea. We arrived back in the appartment
just after 17:00 where after tea and cake we started packing to move onto the vineyard tomorrow. A leftover tea was prepared of avocado salad followed by pea and bean risotto. We had planned a trip Bony's bar but this may be thwarted by the heavy rain.
