A Morning Walk in Spain

Hello Lovelies,
where can I start to share our holiday? I have 300 photos safely stored in my computer waiting to be seen.

This holiday was a big one for us. We visited Tossa de Mar on the Costa Brava.
It was booked to coincide with our 20th wedding anniversary and hubby's 50th birthday. I didn't want to break the bank so  the five of us travelled on a budget airline (it was fine), stayed in an Air BnB ( it was good). 

When we arrived the weather was super hot. I was determined to get out walking so the best thing was to get up early and explore a little before the day got too hot.

On our second day we walked through the pretty lanes.

Then climbed lots of steps.

Till we were on the walls of the 12th century castle.

  looking down on the early sun-seekers and the traditional fishing boats.

We squeezed through the narrow gaps.

Till we had a birds eye view.

I loved exploring this medieval castle with it's interesting ruins and elevated  position.

Which gave us great views of the whole resort with pine clad hills beyond.

and the rugged coastline of the costa brava ( which means wild coast)

The light and shadows here enchanted me.

Safe within the castle walls is the old town. It was great to explore while it was so quiet.

At the bottom of this hill we came to this hole in the castle walls and squeezed through.

to find another beach in a pretty bay. Time to go home for breakfast and pack the beach bag I think :0)

I hope you enjoyed this walk lovelies. I'll be back soon with more postcards from Spain.

  2. Wow.. what a gorgeous place.. perfect for all your celebrations! The fire here is only 3 miles from our house, but has settled down somewhat due to the wind turning.
