Wednesday, October 4
(Sheila) So today we are in for some real relaxation and a dose of
heaven, a little more livin' the dream, not the reality, so-to-speak.
Dan and I head for the beach. Yup, the industrial port of Barcelona,
once a dump, is now a full-fledged beach, cleaned up for the last
Olympics. There is, in fact, sand on this beach although the
roadside section is lined with a concrete sidewalk filled with
pedestrians and cafes that unravel the whole length of this city
beach. Dan runs into the Mediterranean and announces that it's
warm. A few moments later I see an Englishman do the same thing
but when he returns he says the water is cold. So which is it?
Warm or cold?
