I couldn’t resist a sunset photo for this challenge.
Extra points for you if you spotted the helicopter before I mentioned it.
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…

It was quite early on a bright Saturday morning at the end of March and Mevagissey harbour was looking very attractive. The tide was out and the boats just lay there, waiting for the water to come and release them.
We started by walking along the east wharf, past the very sheltered inner harbour, stopping to look back towards the town. There is a little museum here but it wasn’t open, sadly.
Walking on we went right to the end of the breakwater which forms part of the outer harbour and stood for a while watching the waves.
Looking across we could see the other side of the harbour and decided to retrace our steps and then walk along the west wharf to the lighthouse which marks the harbour entrance.
On our way to the lighthouse we had spotted a sign for the coastal path and decided to go up the steps and then loop round and back into town through the houses. From the top we had great views of the harbour and buildings.
Walking down through the narrow streets we decided that a warming coffee was needed to finish off our little outing and there was no shortage of choices of cafes around the harbour from which to choose.
