Empuriabrava Butterfly Park

Yesterday we had a very pleasant day out from Lloret de Mar at the Empuriabrava Butterfly Park...

As well as the very colourful butterflies there are birds from all over the world, reptiles, and even a bat cave....I missed out that part of the visit...bats aren't my favourite creatures at all!
Entrance fee at present is €9.50 with a reduction for children.
Visit the Parks website here...

November events in Lloret

Every November Lloret de Mar hosts the very popular Medieval weekend...this is always well attended with lots of things going on for all the family.
The town is turned into a medieval style village and market, shows, exhibitions, demonstrations can also be seen. You will also see weird and wonderful scary characters in the streets as you walk around...see the photos below from last weekends event.

Lloret de Mar October weather

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!

October in Lloret

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 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.
