Exploring the Coast

Some photos of our coastal wanderings near Cedaqués and near Roses.

Apparently every little bouy is to anchor a ship? And the sun has popped out!

Not all the houses are a Meditteranean white; some are made from the stone of the hills.

There was a LOT of graffiti in Spain, especially of either Catalonian politics or nazi-ism. Apparently no surface was spared.

The obligatory goofy boy photo.

My son really enjoyed walking the coast. I would love to take him hiking down it some weekend! We saw several pairs of hikers, in spite of the chill autumn.

The red “stones” mixed in the coastal gravel are actually a mix of the red clay stone everywhere and broken terra cotta pottery, which the area is known for.

This one is worth clicking on to get a bigger shot with all the detail!

We endured a horrific windstorm the day we went to the Empuries and Roses. The beach was blowing up into the city and pretty much coated us all.

The marina was a big focal at Roses, but not busy here in the off-season.
