Thursday 21 April 2016 - Walking Route 77 - Torre d'Albarca

After the drizzle had stopped, Sue and I went on quite a long drive to beyond Artà, whence we headed to Cala Estreta. 

The sun came out as we walked down to the beach, then on beside the sea to the old watch tower on Morro d'Albarca. It's in fine condition, with a narrow spiral staircase and a rickety wooden ladder leading to a large circular viewing platform with an old cannon barrel. This provided a fine spot for lunch away from the Germans, whose athletic prowess barred their means of progress up the narrow staircase.

The gadget recorded a 14 km bimble, the exact route of which will be shared with readers in due course. It followed route 77 in the Cicerone guide, plus a few embellishments, to and fro along the coast. 

As on previous days, I've attempted to load some pictures to tell the story.

Another long drive by a circuitous route via Inca saw us back at the apartment by 6.15pm, a few minutes after R and L, who had enjoyed a 35 mile local ride.

It's the last night for Sue and me, so we all went to Stay (top restaurant), for some more top grub. Robert took lots of photos for his 'Brexton Travels' blog. Watch this space...
