    Chilling by the Mediterranean Sea

    September 27, 2017 in Spain ⋅ 🌙 20 °C

    After days of walking around much of Barcelona we decided to take a day off and go relax by the sea at Barceloneta beach. We got there in the morning and just relaxed in the sand until about 4:00 . Barry did go in for a swim while I just dipped my feet in and looked for sea glass on the shore. So many vendors selling everything from beach blankets / pareos to fresh mojitos, sangria and icy cold beer to massages of your neck and feet lol. 😂!!! We decided to go back to La Boqueria market to grab something quick for supper. We had empanadas , fresh pressed raspberry/coconut juice and a big container of cut up fresh fruit. We went back to our place to get ready for our travel day tomorrow. Headed to the Amalfi Coast! While we were walking back from dinner the other night and now tonight from our window we could hear lots of people banging pots and pans out their windows. We googled it and found that it is because the Catalonia people here in Barcelona want to become an independent state from the rest of Spain. The government of Madrid is resisting their wishes for a referendum , the vote takes place in November. This is their way of protesting. We have also noticed many flags and peaceful protests around the city. Up early tomorrow to get the airport bus to get our flight. Stay tuned💕😘✈️Read more
