Larger than life

At Borrego Springs, in the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, California, they have some big creatures…

These sculptures are the work of sculptor Ricardo Breceda.  There are dozens of them on the outskirts of the village, in an area called Galleta Meadows – horses, llamas, tortoises, sabre toothed tigers and wild pigs in addition to the photos I’ve posted here.

Sunset – a good time to surf?

This surfer had just arrived at the beach, ready for a sunset surfing session.  I didn’t think the waves looked particularly high, but what do I know…

Time for a post about Barcelona

At last, I hear  you saying!

I thought I would get started with a visit to the wonderful market of La Boqueria, one of Europe’s largest food markets, just off Las Ramblas in Barcelona.

It is an amazing place to visit – the hustle and bustle, the crowds, the scents, the sights and the produce make it easy to spend quite a while there, and that’s without buying anything.  I visited in the early afternoon, so missed the main spectacle of the fish market as many of the stalls were empty or emptying.  One or two other stalls had closed but there was still plenty for me to see.  In addition to the produce for sale, there are many tapas bars, where you pull up a stool and choose from a mouthwatering selection of small dishes, cooked as you wait.

Without further ado, let the mouth-watering begin…

Let’s finish off with some sweet treets…
