The sun has returned and Colin was straight out there working on his tan.
We saw this boy circling over one of the reserves by the campsite, from the early morning walk. Marsh Harrier? It looks a bit like the picture in Wikipedia.
It is market day today in L’Estartit and we cycled in first thing (11.30 am)
The Islands from which the campsite, Camping Les Medes, takes its name are just offshore, on the right as you cycle in to town.
We picked up a bit of fruit and veg for lunch and stopped for coffee overlooking the town square. We met a friendly Irish couple who divided their lives up between Manchester, a caravan in County Antrim and an apartment in L’Estartit. Property is cheap here at the moment, by UK standards.
Tony and Rose, and Mark and Penny have moved on now but Chris and Jennifer are here for a couple more days; they showed us how to play pétanque. You have to get your boule ( a heavy metal ball… Nia is chucking one in the next pic) as close as possible to the litle orange ball which is called a cochonnet. This is apparently French for piglet. It was great fun ane we are now on the look out for a second hand set of boules.
It was girls vs. boys and somehow the girls won…not sure why but they must have cheated somehow.
