Beach picnics and Olympics . . .

So as Barcelona is so eye wateringly expensive to eat out, we are the experts at supermarket shopping and impromptu picnics.

Here’s Neil on the beach at La Barceloneta with one of our many on the cheap meals!! (Looks like he has given himself a rather painful injury on the left . . )

La Barceloneta is a lovely little beach resort in the Ciutat Vella district of Barcelona. We watched the surfers coming perilously close to shore and people taking part in Tai Chi on the beach, there’s a really chilled out and cool feel to the place.

Here we are at the end of the day on the beach, I’m a bit sun burnt and Neil’s wearing girls sunglasses. A normal day all in all.

La Barceloneta is also close to the Port Olímpic a marina  that hosted the sailing events for the 1992 Summer Olympics.

We visited the Olympic stadium at Montjuic but couldn’t get into the main arena as there was a huge dog show going on!!

Here’s Neil outside with some of the weird architecture created for the event. The white structure is the Montjuïc Communications Tower
