How Sweet it is to be Reclined

We have moved up the coast to L’Escala and are staying at Camping Illa Mateua. This is just a short hop south from L’Estartit but is just beyond easy cycling distance. As promised in the reviews the staff here are

Two Cats in a Boat

We arrived here at Camping Les Medes in Cataluña, one of our favourite sites, on Wednesday and found a nice corner for Mavis next to the garden and tennis court. Thursday was still sunny, and after a quick tennis knockabout

Exercise Time

The boss has designated today as a cleaning day, in preparation for the trip home, so I shall have to take the torpid terriers for some exercise. There are plenty of cats to chase here, ‘tho, truth be told, Colin

Out For Lunch

On Tuesday we explored a bit further afield with the bikes; this is the route that we followed…courtesy of viewranger, the app we use to track our cycling. We set off along the River Ter and then diverted into Torroella

We are becoming goat’s cheese salad connoisseurs. This is the version from a cafe in Torroella. There is a warm (grilled?) chunk of ‘Chèvre de Cabra’ on a generous pile of lettuce, raisins and walnuts, dressed with olive oil and

Torroella…Los Americanos

On Monday we cycled along the promenade to L’Estartit and then along the cycle way to Torroella de Montgrí. We had a swim en route. Well not all of us. We had lunch close to the pretty main square. These

Cala Callela…The Assault Course

We had another shot at the coastal path today. We locked our bikes up outside the local Oficina de Turismo and walked up the steep path to this viewpoint, the Cap de la Barra. It is about 100 metres above

Calamares a la Romana

We are putting down roots here in L’Estartit; it is quiet and peaceful here at the moment in the low season. There’s not a lot in Saturday’s blog entry because not a lot happened. We set off for a walk

Torroella de Montgri…Un Petit Rebellion and the Bishop’s Nose

Today we cycled to Torroella de Montgri which is a small town about 5 km inland from L’Estartit. There is a good cycle path, mainly off road, from L’Estartit. Torroella de Magri gets its name from this Castle, built between

L’Estartit…Moonrise over Les Medes

On Thursday we drove 25 miles down the coast to Camping Les Medes ( N 42.042504, E 3.183582) near the coastal town of L’Estartit. This is a friendly medium sized site with a few things going on even in the
