Where to start. I can’t believe where the time has gone! Our holiday seemed to fly by in no time but we had a blast – great craic with the family and the sangria! I would highly recommend the resort Playa Bara near Taragona – really beautiful and not at all “touristy”. The best bit is that the lovely beach with safe, warm waves is on your doorstep and the beach cafes are buzzing. There are mostly Spanish and Dutch people throughout the resort and beach. We normally holiday at Duinrell in Holland which is another wonderful family resort so we were happy to see all the freaky deaky Dutch although they’re all so tanned and skinny and tall and gorgeous :(.
I know that our weather at home has been miserable but there is something so good about looking out the Easyjet window just as you turn towards Aldergrove and realising that Ireland really is an emerald isle – a green like no other – it takes the soft weather with our almost daily rain to produce the intensity of colour. I love it. I love the dull, mild, mizzly weather, I’m sorry but I do, maybe it’s my celtic bones or maybe it’s the laser eye surgery I had 8 years ago which has left me incapable of tolerating even the slightest hint of bright weather without a peak cap and blue bottle sunglasses. Obviously I didn’t wear a chavvy cap on holiday, I wore a lovely pink, straw, wide brimmed sunhat from Primark – priced at a fiver but went through the till at a pound – I do love a bargain. I thought I looked quite classy, even with the addition of the blue bottle sunglasses but I was a bit miffed to see quite a few Dutch people point and laugh. All very well for them with their sun loving genes but at least the lovely Spanish people were good enough not to stare, even though my hat bumped into quite a few of them on the way to the pool.
Anyway, here are a few photos of the beautiful scenery.
