Lloret - Fenals Beach

Is this the bravest lady in Lloret? Although the weather is good with reasonable temperatures through the day I think you have to be very brave to take a dip in the sea at this time of year!

Lloret Bikers Event

 One of the biggest bikers events we have seen took place today in Lloret.  Bikes of every shape, size and make lined the Av Just Marles and all around the carousel square stalls were selling just about everything the serious biker would ever need!

Food and drinks were on sale and live bands played on the specially erected stage in the square...a great lively atmosphere and a good day out for everyone!

Lloret - Fenals Beach

After the dreadful  storms we have had in Lloret during the last 2 weeks or so it now looks as though we are back to more settled sunny weather - for now at least! 21º  today would you believe! Just to show what effect the heavy rain has had on Fenals beach, these pictures show just how the water flooding down to the sea has gouged its way through the sand. Several trees in the woods just to the back of the beach have fallen with the land slides, and others have had to be cut down to make them Fenals beach area is not looking its best just now!

Ryanair in Girona & Reus Airports

An agreement has at last been struck between Ryanair and Generalitat of Catalonia which will secure flights to and from Girona airport for the next five years, and will restore routes in Reus as from April 2012. Only a signature is needed to say that AENA will not increase costs to Ryanair in 2012.
Once achieved the airline say they will carry 3 million passengers per year to Girona, and 500,000 to Reus, which would secure 500 jobs at the Tarragona airport.

There are also plans to set up a commitee which will meet several times a year in order to plan and arrange the most viable routes for the region.
Land will also be made available for Ryanair to build a hotel close to Girona airport and also a hanger for aircraft maintainance.

Lloret's Medieval Event 2011

The annual Medieval festival will be again taking place in the streets of Lloret 12th & 13th Oct. This is always a very popular event where you can see craftsmen demonstating how things were made in medieval times. The usual stalls of hand made goods and produce will be open through out the day from tomorrow morning until Sunday evening. There has been quite a bit of controversy just lately about the live animals and birds of prey which have been on show in past events, so this could be the last time the animals will be taking part.

Lloret de Mar Weather

4th November and the 59th Costa Brava Rally is due to start today but if this bad weather continues as it is now then I wont be going out for photos for the blog! Yesterday although it was still warm it was very humid with slight rain at times - until late last night when it started to thunder and lighten with heavy rain....and its still coming down! The sea was very rough yesterday and in places on Fenals beach it was almost touching the promenade wall.

Most of these rocks are normally covered by sand!
These photos taken 31st October on Lloret beach show how the rough sea from the recent storms of last month cut through the sands leaving  rocks exposed on the beach after washing huge amounts of sand out to sea.
