It was hard yesterday…… we had to decide whether to swim in the pool or the sea!
We both had a bad night. (heat, mossies and snoring) so we abandoned our plan to go into Barcelona by train for the day and decided to chill out. So in the morning we swam and rested in the pool and in the afternoon had a siesta. At four o’clock we swam in the sea with snorkels. The sea was warmer than the pool. So we did both.
In the evening we walked along the beach to a tapas restaurant and sat outside. Lovely.
We both chose mixed tapas for starter. When it came there was mussels. patatas bravas, croquettes and something else very nice. We asked the waiter what it was. Octopus! I can’t believe I liked octopus!
lovely to catch up with you. loved the human towers and have sent your pix to my 10 year old grandson to whom I am trying to sell the idea that there is more to life than just shinning up the nearest lamp post! (how about Everest or something?)
just got back from six wonderful weeks in USA, East to West and then North to Vancouver and thence Alaska. fit as a flea all the time I was away, returned to ten days’ jet lag and have now sprained my knee. so much for being absolutely wonderful for 75, but do not let on!
good to know you are sacrificing yourself to the pleasures that Spain has to offer and hope your Spanish is proving useful personally I only found it useful in laundromats in USA! but am rejoining Spanish group at Ropetackle Fridays and we are hoping to get Margarita back ultimately.
we are going to miss you big time in the Autumn. keep on with the blog and much love and good wishes to you both. onwards and upwards (or something). love from Marina.
