On a fine October afternoon...

...a while ago now, there were two people who had a ride to the beach. The sun was shining and the weather was excellent. The autumn breeze was refreshing as they rode down the cycling lane next to Paral·lel Avenue in Barcelona. Then, at the end of the avenue, they turned right and there they were, the end of Les Rambles with its Columbus statue pretending to signal America but signalling...France? Italy?

They turned left and cycled next to the sea, bordering Port Vell' ('Old Dock'). The white boats and the sun reflecting on the water were a delightful sight. It was impossible not to take a picture.




After a few shots, the riding continued. People walked, talked and lingered calmy on the seaside, enjoying their time. Finally they got to La Barceloneta and left the bike. It was time to walk for a while now, accompanied by the fading lights of the sunset.


A wonderful Sunday afternoon.

I can feel the sunshine and the breeze. Very refreshing! I am looking forward to more spring weather too :-).

Very nice. We're getting some slightly better weather up in the hills here as well, and that combined with lots of shiny new E-bikes, is bringing the masses out in force. It's lovely, ut a bit disconcerting after being used to having the cycleways to myself over winter...
