The weather has now taken a dramatic change for the worse just recently, not only in Lloret but up and down the coast they are seeing heavy rainfall which is flooding some roads making travel very difficult and dangerous in some areas. In Lloret we have had heavy rain but the temperatures are still very mild...even warm enough for a walk out in shorts and T shirts in between the bouts of rain!

The summer season is almost over in Lloret, a few hotels and businesses will soon be closing until next year. After the month of October while the large clubs/disco close there is still a good selection of the smaller bars, restaurants shops etc, and just now the weather is still very good...so it maybe an ideal time to take a relaxing few days holiday!
These photos were taken this morning (3/10/16) just as the sun was rising over Lloret de Mar beach.

Friday evenings Picasso run was a great event with all the runners getting absolutely covered in coloured powder. The race started at the carousel square from there they made their way down towards the seafront and on towards the castle turn at the roundabout and back to the start again...well done to all the runners they did great and gave us all a few laughs!
