We had another late night last night and stayed in bed until 9:00. We were supposed to go up to Tibidabo but we decided to go slow today. No rushing to go anywhere. We had breakfast and headed out to walk down towards Placa Catalunya but before we got too far we stopped at our regular cafe for coffee. We strolled down Roger de Lluria looking in store windows and alleys. When I say stroll, I mean stroll. We took a long time to get to C de Ausias. We were going to a surf shop that had skater and surfer clothes on sale. Alex was still looking for that purse. She claimed it would jump out at her is she saw it. Anyhow, we got to the shop and guess what ? I bought a pair of surfer pants. Pants I swore I wouldn't be caught dead in. I actually like them but what do you think ?

  After buying the pants we hunted for Alex's purse and she found one she was happy with. We started to head in the general direction of home and stopped around 1:30 for a huge lunch. The intent was to eat a big lunch and have a light supper. We went home, did home stuff and went back out around 5:30. This time we headed up towards Gracia. We were going for coffee and ended up at the lebonese restaurant for coffee and baclava. Pearl and Al know which one I'm talking about. Alex wanted to check out a sushi place that was on c/Verdi and from there we meandered towards home. We discovered a medieval church and some more placas on the way home. After another day of discovery we went home for cheese, cava, jamon, sausage and cassis. Life sure is good. By the way, during the day's wanderings, I took some photos of another amazing door knockers. Speaking of which, I have to take a picture of the huge knockers I pointed out to Pearl. Anyhow, that's another story. Here are the photos.

    Hi Alan,
    I really like your pose for your outfit. I am not so sure about those pants but they looked cool on you. You actually look much slimmer in that picture. So your determination on slimming down must have worked. Good for you!
    When are you and Alex going to Madrid?
    Al and I had dinner at Anton’s house and he showed us the pictures of his trip to Paris. He and his wife loved Paris.
    He made a comment about How YOUNG you looked and he was surprised that you and were about the same age because you looked much younger. Well with that comment have a wonderful day.

    Who’s that cool dude???!!! The picture reminds me of one of those you find in “People Magazine”: “Who’s this major celeb hiding behind the dark shades and cool surfer pants”? I like the pants, by the way. Shows off your slim ankles!!! I have to agree that you do look slimer and younger. Must be doing something right like having Alex in your life! Keep sending those pictures. I just love them. You do have quite an eye and a talent for taking really amazing pictures.
    Talk to you soon.
