Passing Cruise Liner

 Tonight is very humid and misty, at the moment the time is 21.25 and the temperature is still 29º probably wont cool down much more through the night, making it another very uncomfortable night for sleeping

 Looking out to sea this cruise liner was just passing, I should think it will be docking in at Palamos just up the almost looks as though its sailing through the air as you cant tell where the sea ends and the sky starts!

Lloret de Mar Summertime

 Lloret is now getting temperatures in the high 30s, with reports saying that its going to be a scorching summer!  The town has got that familiar buzz again which seems to come when the town is full of holiday makers.

Last week there were 1,500 clubbers in town and this week there are approx 3,000  here to sample the best nightlife on the Costa Brava. The beach bars, boats and fast food places are also benefiting from all the young visitors.

Cala Bany's Lloret

 Its getting hotter by the day in Lloret, 36ºc yesterday, so what better way than to spend an hour or so sat under the shade of the trees at Bar Cala Banys the most picturesque cocktail bar in Lloret! From where we live its just about a steady 20-30 minutes walk through the woods, and it really does feel much cooler sat on their terrace with light breeze from the sea.

Lloret de Mar Today

 Well I dont know if I'm right but it certainly felt like it was the hottest day of the year so far in Lloret today. The town is now very busy, the boats are doing a good trade and there are plenty of people on the streets, lets hope it keeps up like this for the rest of the season! Oh! and just to confuse everyone the one way system that was put in place on the road along the seafront last year is this week been changed back to the two way system we had before!

Lloret de Mar Guitart Rosa Hotel

While out shopping in Lloret centre the other day I passed by the Guitart Rosa Hotel and couldnt resist just stepping inside the gate to have a look around the tropical style garden and take a photo of this beautiful building. Its such a pleasant change to see such a well cared for and peaceful garden even though it stands on the corner of one of the busiest shopping streets in Lloret!

Lloret fast food & takeaway

In Lloret you have a huge choice of fast food options from the local bodegas, pizzas, kebab places to the usual well known brands you are familar with back home. Just on the main strip in Lloret centre alone you have a choice of Burger King, McDonalds and just recently opened is Subway with their usual snacks, salads and wraps menu. All have the same offers and meal deals as seen at home. Other places have also newly opened this year and these are the new burger & fries place 'John Thomas' and Capricci. Capricci seem to be doing very well with their €3.75 all day English or Continental breakfasts as well as their pizzas and pasta makes you feel hungry just walking past!

Lloret de Mar-Fira Americanos

 We got some lovely photos from the Fira dels Americano parade today. There was a small group of people who were dressed in reproduction costumes just as the wealthy people of Lloret would have done way back in the 19th century when they had returned to Lloret after earning their fortunes over in the West Indies and Cuba.

Lloret de Mar, a day at Marineland

For a fantastic family day out from Lloret de Mar (or just about any resort in the area) you can be sure to be entertained from the moment you step through the gate to stepping back out at the end of your visit to Marineland. Advertised as '2 parks in 1' you first of all have the parrot show and then the sea lions and dolpin shows - all great fun from start to finish. The waterpark features will keep all the family amused for the rest of the day, see more photos and videos from a day at MARINELAND HERE
