February - April 2015

The usual mixture of spring weather – many lovely days with spectacular flowers, migrating birds (including an impressive passage of cranes in March) and butterflies, but also some heavy rain and strong winds (a lorry was blown onto its side on the road below the house). Once again we are thankful that the house is well sheltered from the prevailing winds, the tramontane. Our first visitors of the year included a group of local Chambres d’hôtes owners who walk from one house to the other in the close season. We shall be joining them on next year’s walk.
We took a few days away in Barcelona (easily reached by train with amazing deals on train prices). We know good places to stay which are close to the centre but away from the tourists. We had not visited the Sagrada Familia for some years and were astonished at the copmpleted interior. We took time also for some cross country skiing (less than two hours away) before Easter arrived and the new season was under way once more.
