OK, the last few days have been a little crazy but all will be explained soon. First i must pick up where i left off at Girona and tell you about my wonderful afternoon wandering between Sant Feliu de Guixols and Platja d´Aro – towns along the Costa Brava coastline!
The Costa Brava stretches from Blanes, 60km northeast of Barcelona, to the French border.Costa Brava is one of spains premier beach destinations and it’s rugged headleands and white sandy beaches are line with incredible mansions, villas and as i found out – restaurants!
To expend a bit of energy and properly absorb my surrounds i went for a walk with my friend and explored the area where he has been fortunate spend many of him summers.
We cruised along the beach and i made pact that i will do my best to return i the summer when the area with filled by bronzed beach goers and the sun is radiating warmth. But there is something really tranquil about beaches in the winter and i was glad to see this side as well
At the end of the beach we headed up and then around the headland
admiring the amazing villas and taking in the Mediterranean views – i couldnt believe the vivid colour of the ocean
which was particularly striking against the rugged orange headland.
We walked and talked and soaked it all up until we reached the next beach, our destination of departure
And after a lovely day, we finally had to head back home to Cabrils
I had another great night at the Mataro club – the security guards know me now!
to relax and get organised for the week ahead – little did i know my weekend was the calm before a wirlwind change of events!
