Spain and Home Again

Well I’ve been home for two days now and have just about settled back in and finished with the jet lag.  I’ll pick up where I left off Tuesday night when the Internet was giving me trouble.  Here are a few more pictures from the Sunset Cruise on the catamaran, Magic.

Here’s the street entertainer who was playing when we disembarked from our cruise,

the suburbs of Roses — daytime and nighttime:

I also took some nice shots from the harbour cruise in Barcelona which took place in daylight and never got the time to post them.

At bedtime Tuesday, I started to feel ill.  Whether it was something I ate, or drank, or just nerves about making all my connections the next day, I don’t know, but in the morning I was fine, up on time, and early to the bus station.  The lady at the counter said, “Why don’t you just take the bus directly to the Barcelona airport?  It’s much faster and you don’t have to make any switches.”  So that’s what I did.  Piece of cake!

Things went smoothly at the Barcelona airport.  While waiting for my flight, I heard them call for a flight to Casablanca.  Ooh!  Maybe next year!  The bus from Montreal to Ottawa was about a half hour late but eventually we all got on board and headed home.  A very long day.  I was up at 1:10 am Ottawa time and got to bed and 11:45 pm Ottawa time.  Felt good to be home and very happy that my family kept in touch with me while I was away.  I would go back again but do things a little differently another time.  I would definitely want a room with a view and a balcony in Roses.  I never rented a car and there were some places I didn’t get to see I’d like to go back and have another go at.  But all in all, a fabulous vacation!  Here are some favourite photos!

About mysm2000

Having taught elementary school for more than 25 years and been involved in many amazing technology and curriculum projects, I find I've developed a myriad of interests based on literature I've read and music I've heard. I've followed The Wright Three to Chicago, Ansel Adams to Colorado, The Kon Tiki Expedition to Easter Island, Simon & Garfunkel lyrics to New York City, Frank Lloyd Wright to Fallingwater, Pennsylvania, and have only just begun.
