We woke to more glorious sunshine, in fact, the perfect morning. Earlier in the holiday, I'd bought a snorkel and goggles. I'd been amazed at the fish close to shore on Pollenca beach, and was keen to do more in different places. I didn't realise when we set off, but this place we were going to was very, VERY good for snorkeling. It was going to blow our minds!
The start of the path was only a couple of minutes from the hotel. As you can see, it's well-walked and good underfoot.
Looked nice, though. Quite 'arty'.
I know, I know - hardly James Bond, but I was a very happy bunny. The fish life here was fantastic. I'd seen at least ten species, and we saw even more each time we went in. One notable one was a small shoal of barracuda.
Sue was eager to get in. We really need two of the snorkels next time!
We finally packed up and wended our way back to the hotel for dinner. This is a view of the farmhouse that is being renovated.
At around 2am, I was woken by what I thought, in my semi-conscious state, was Sue turning the light on and off in the bedroom. It was actually lightning. I got up (Sue was oblivious and fast asleep) and went on to the balcony. The rain was HAMMERING down, and I mean hard! The thunder rumbled loudly, and I took this picture as lightning struck to the right of the hotel.
Then, BANG! It struck right in front of me. I didn't get the fork on the picture, but I did get this shot of the sky lit up. I really would love to have been on the beach, but the rain was just too hard. I had to content myself with the show from the balcony.
The morning was cooler, but lovely. We caught a bus into Alcudia to pick up our car. Alcudia is like Blackpool (if you don't know what this means - Google it. It's all 'kiss me quick', and burgers - a horrible place to the likes of us). The car was a fiasco, but less said the better. We walked along Alcudia beach to have a look. Much more 'organised' and commercialised than Puerto.
Thanks to a good friend, we were now able to pick the car up tomorrow, so the exploration of the island could begin.
