Sunny Spain, May/June 2015

Changes have been afoot around these parts, changes in a good way though which hopefully mean I will now have lots more time to get back into the blogging swing of things. Although it is now the school holidays so time may not be on my side quite so much until September. Still, while the small boy watches TV (bad mother...), I can get a little back-blogging done.

During the Spring half term holiday we made our usual excursion to Spain - San Feliu de Guixols on the Costa Brava, to be precise. We are very fortunate that hubby's parents own an apartment there, so it's an easy and relatively cost-effective break. And we can fly from Bristol airport which is only an hour away, which is a definite bonus.

Happy to be heading to the sun!
We headed to the nearby beach at San Pol on our first full day; the sea is such a glorious colour along this coast.

And every evening we would head in to the town of San Feliu for an ice lolly.

 We made our annual trip to Girona. Such a beautiful old town to explore, especially walking along the old ramparts.

 For the last four years hubby and DS have stood on the same spot during this same week to have their photo taken. It's a great way to see how much DS has grown.

This is our favourite spot along the coast - the picturesque town of Calella de Palafrugell; glorious coastal views, a sweet little beach and a wonderful restaurant. We can easily while away several hours at a time here.

We enjoyed it so much that we decided to come back the next day; this time I took my cross-stitch...

 All too soon it was time to head home; but we'll be back again next year!
