We woke up to a beautiful day in Barcelona. The sun was out. The cloudless blue sky stared down at us. Finally, it was time to hit the beach. We walked from our little apartment and walked through the streets. Stopping in shops to enjoy some shopping and were not disappointed.
We walked along the waterfront, heading along Barceloneta where we would find some sand and surf. Finding the beach was easy and we found a lovely spot in the sun to set down our towels. Lounging in the sand we enjoyed the rays amidst the constant call of "Massage!...Sangria!....Mojito!...Agua!... Cola!" It was a bit annoying as these people wandered around you as you tried to enjoy some peace and quiet.
We did not end up swimming as our section of beach was quite full of waves which would have made it a bit difficult. Shall try not to regret too much not finding a calmer section. The fact I was not wearing my bathing suit also affected this decision.
