Tuesday 2 May 2017 - Cala de San Vicenç and Puig de l'Aguila

After another long sleep (ie lie in) the easy agenda for today involved a walk from the apartment. It was a simple decision to choose to stroll over the Coll de Siller to Cala de San Vicenç for coffee and cake, then on up a beautifully constructed quarry track to enjoy splendid views from the 214 metre summit of Puig de l'Aguila.

The last bit of ascent was on a rocky, cairned path bordered with the lovely scent of rosemary.

Panoramic views were again the order of the day. The descent back to Cala was rewarded with an excellent lunch of crab and prawn sandwiches with chips and salad, at the Marinas restaurant.

It was a relatively easy walk from there back to base, via cairned paths over the Coll de Siller in the presence of the area's ubiquitous feral goats.

We were back home for beer o'clock, for which we were joined by Paul from parkrun, who has flown in for a few days of what he wouldn't but I would describe as 'extreme road biking'. We met up with him again later at Osteria N15 for an excellent meal in Puerto de Pollença's main square.

I remember getting to the top of that ridge where the window is and then seeing the drop off the other side. I think i swore that day.

Sue says you are welcome to join her there next time, as I refuse to walk along that ridge...
