Recent weather in Lloret de Mar

At last it seems to have stopped raining...for the time being at least. After heavy rainfall during last week we finally had a rain free day yesterday which is just what was needed for the stall holders at the second hand market which took place in the El Reiral district. There was wide range of goods on sale, new goods as well as second hand. I'm sure that if this becomes a regular event then it will be huge success and give the people in and around Lloret the chance to get rid of unwanted items that are just too good to throw away...I know I'll be clearing my stuff out if there is a next time!

So after a very nice day yesterday when the temperature rose to a nice 21C, the early evening sky was quite a spectacular sight, which was changing by the second as the sun was setting.

30th October 2011
With temperatures again today reaching 21C, holiday makers are out enjoying the sun and spending time on the beach as well as the sea! See the photos below...who would think it was Halloween?

Is it really 31st October?

Market in Lloret de Mar

This coming weekend there will be a market of second hand goods in Lloret, this is something very different for Lloret so I'm sure it will be a huge success. It gives people the chance to sort out items they have at home which are too good to throw away and in turn it gives the buyers a chance to grab a few bargains! The market will be where the weekly Tuesday market is held in the Reiral district.

Lloret de Mar weather in October

"How long is this weather going to last" everyone in Lloret de Mar seems to be saying these days!
 We are now half way through October and still the temperatures are way above what they should be for this time of year. It was forecast that it would be cooler as from Sunday and as this video shows we have had a fair bit of cloud today - but still it reached 25ºC by this afternoon and the cloud slowly drifted away.

So plenty warm enough to soak up the sun on the beach for those here on holiday!

Lloret de Mar Indoor Market

Lloret's indoor market is to undergo a much needed make over - the first time that anything has been done to the interior since it opened back in the 1970s. With the plans to improve lighting and possibly increase the floor space (once the nearby police station moves to its new location) its hoped that it will attract more local customers and also tourists. At present there are 63 stores but not all are open for business, most of the stalls are selling meat, fish and fresh fruit and vegetables.
