Palma to Alcudia

Another run along the seafront this morning, and another lovely sunny day.

We are staying near the top of a steep hill so we had to descend lots of steps to get down to the promenade.

We ran further than last time, and while I chugged slowly along Darren kept stopping to take photos.

Our turnaround point was at a giant teepee like structure with a weather vane on the top and mosaics in the style of Gaudi around the base.

I have tried to find out more about it, but despite there being hundreds of photos and reviews online, not one of them says anything about what it is and why it's there. It does have a name though - Sa Gavina Blava.

Later we checked out of our hotel, walked to the bus station and caught a very busy bus to Alcudia on the north of the island.

It has a beautiful sweeping beach, a nice harbour and lots of cyclists on very expensive bikes. Some are cycling, but most of them seem to be sitting outside the coffee and cake shops, and maybe we will join them in the next day or two.
