A Weekend for Beaching

October 17, 2006 at 9:06 pm 4 comments

This weekend was a weekend of sun, sand and water. It was beach time. Since Alex’s family is from Brazil they wanted to get some beach time in. We went to Sitges on Saturday and they really enjoyed the beach there. We also did a bit of tourist and walked around the town. It IS a very picturesque pueblo.

The day was perfect for the beach and we still needed a sun umbrella to escape the heat. Sitges was winding down their anual film festival so there were all kinds of interesting people wandering around.

That night we took them to Placa España to see the fonte magica. MNAC had it’s crown of spotlights and because the air was slightly misty I was able to capture the scene.

On Sunday we went to bogatel in Barcelona. Once again it was a perfect da.

Alex and I had enough of beaches so we dropped off her family and went off taking photos.

Matheus really enjoyed the water.

We had to keep an eye on him because of the size of the waves. They were breaking with a lot of power.

It was such a gorgeous day that even cyclists stopped to enjoy the surf and sun.

    Glad to see Alex’s family are enjoying their stay with you. Looks like you are having great weather.
    Thanksgiving was great – we had dinner at Kim’s and all ate too much. Michael and the family are well and send their love.
    Take care
    Love JoAnn

    Hey JoAnn
    Alex’s parents had a great time. They left Wednesday night so we’re back to being on our own. Did you talk Michael into getting a computer?

    He has a computer – now just needs internet. I copied some of your blogs for them to read. His kids are getting so big…Sean is driving and Rose just got back from Calgary. Life sure goes by too fast.

    Hey JoAnn
    Talk him into getting internet and email. What was Rose doing in Calgary ?
    You’re right about life going by too fast
