After visiting Gerona, we continued on to Pals.  Pals depends very much on tourism, and during off-season, it’s more or less a very beautiful ghost town.

We visited the city on a small group tour with David, a fine guide and driver, who kept us well informed and entertained.  He told us about another guide who, at a bar, exhausted after leading months of tours, suggested that Sagrada Familia be bombarded into dust from the cannons of Montjuic!  I think some others of us may sometimes have felt a similar level of  frustration at work.

After a short stop in Pals, it was on to the Costa Brava, and the Mediterranean.

Sadly, unlike Valencia, it was too cold for Mary to get her feet wet here.

 

I was on the lookout for beachfront property.

 

Not too many fixer-uppers on this beach.  Pretty decent view, though.

 

 

Here’s my finger and the lighthouse above the beach.

The sun was low when we returned to Barcelona, tired and content.
