Jardi Botanic Marimurtra
Yesterday we went to lunch at a yummy place called Lanou, and ate more food than I care to recount. It was all delicious and we were tired after our big meal. But since I had yet to see the Botanical gardens in Blanes (due to a slight uphill detour to the Blanes castle), I was determined.
Sign on the restroom doors at Lanou!
Fun with Bread and cafe! Shan has Mike’s cafe con Leche, and I have my cafe solo.
The gardens were amazing with incredible views. I never had a fear of heights until I had children. This garden is on the bluff overlooking Blanes and there are no guard rails. All of these castles and ‘high’ up sites have NO guard rails. I knew this before I got here, but nonetheless, when you have 4 very determined and thrillseeking children, well, it makes for very sweaty palms for mommy! Mike, of course, is always amused. I usually have to walk ahead of them and shake my head when we’re near edges, but even so, I was able to get these great shots…
The visit was a success complete with parrots who say ¡HOLA!
It may be awhile before I post again. Our next stop is Andorra for 2 days, then 3 days in Toulouse, and 1 night on the border of Spain and France. We’ll conclude our trip with a stint for 10 days in Barcelona. I’ll probably catch up with you once we’re there. 🙂
