Lloret de Mar Bar's

Its much too hot to be indoors these days, so what better way to enjoy the sun than to spend a relaxing afternoon on the outdoor terrace of one of the bars in Lloret de Mar?
As you wander around the narrow streets of Lloret de Mar you come across little picturesque squares such as this where all the locals meet up and have a coffee or a 'few' beers and catch up on the gossip!
A few more bars you may like to visit can be found in these pages HERE!

Barcelona Port - The World

Docking at Barcelona Port today is the cruise liner
'The World'
The World is a luxurious and very private community of people who choose to live at sea on this unique liner. You can (if you are rich enough!) actually buy an apartment on the liner just as you would buy a home on land, then simply spend your time cruising the world docking at countries on route...a nice idea if you can afford it!  If you have another residence (or residences) on land somewhere its your choice how much time you spend in your home on board, you are free to come and go as you please.

If you would like to see The World in Barcelona you have until tomorrow before she sets sail again, this time for Porto Banus in Southern Spain.
A great idea to get a real close up is to take the boat which takes you on a tour of Barcelona port for only €5.50.

Lloret de Mar Weather

Lloret de Mar beach is certainly very busy these days. This photo taken at the week end shows that after a very slow start to the season there are now plenty of holiday makers in town. The weather has been very unsettled just lately but now seems to be more settled with temperatures in the mid to high 20s. The experts are predicting this summer will be one of the hottest ever, with average highs reaching one or two degrees more than normal, but will be accompanied by storms.

Lloret de Mar Pubs

All the pubs, bars and clubs in Lloret de Mar are doing a roaring trade with the football fans.

It seems that all the English football ball fans who haven't gone to watch the games in South Africa, have come to Lloret de Mar!

Most of the bars have several wide screen TVs so the fans dont have far to go to catch the games.

Flags are flying from just about every hotel balcony, the majority of which are English.

See Buzzbys web page HERE.

Harley Butts in Lloret de Mar

Dont worry, you havent come to the wrong site.
For all regular readers of Lloret de Mar Stuff I just thought it could do with a face lift, I get fed up of looking at the same colours and layout so I hope you all like this design as much as I do!

I'll be giving the other blogs the same treatment shortly...

Here we have the first two photos from this week ends Harley Butts event in Lloret. We went to have a look at the bikes on show this morning and there doesn't seem to be as many as last year.
Its just possible we were too early, so weather permitting we'll have another look tomorrow.

Lloret de Mar - Restaurants

We had a really nice 'menu del dia' yesterday at the Can Sabata in Lloret . The cost per person is only €9 and the menu consists of a 3 course lunch with bread and wine. There was a very good selection for all 3 courses and although it was very busy the service was excellent.

The Can Sabata also do a night time menu for €12.50, again with an excellent choice for every course.

Lloret de Mar Power Cuts

Many homes in Lloret have again been without power, this time for 2 hrs last Thursday 27th May, when some parts of the town were left in the dark from 6pm - 8pm, and again yesterday (1st June) for just over an hour.
For the residents this must have brought back the awful memories of March 8th when most towns along the Costa Brava were without power owing to electricity pylons crumbling under the weight of the snow which fell on that day....Lloret residents being the worst affected with some having no power for up to 5 days!
The electricity supplier Endessa have received a total of 38,000 claims from local businesses and homes who are hoping to receive some sort of compensation for the distress caused. It seems that the electricity supply here in Lloret is still not yet back on a permanent basis.
