Lloret de Mar Views

Lloret from Sa Caleta
After the heavy rain of yesterday in Lloret, this morning we awoke to blue skies with quite a lot cloud, but today the clouds were not rain clouds but large white ones and the sun was shining again - Ideal conditions for getting out and about to take a few photos. To start the day we headed over to Lloret  to take a walk along the path which takes you around the castle.
These are the first few pictures...lots more to come!

Spain Weather Today

Todays weather reports from Spain are telling terrible stories of people in Southern regions having lost their lives in flash floods caused by heavy rainfall. In Lloret today we are experiencing heavy rain but nothing as bad as that seen on the news. The rain is forecast to continue for the next 2 days and then we should be seeing the sun again on Tuesday. This is a video just taken from our balcony....I dont think I'll be going much further today!

Lloret de Mar - Fenals Today

 Along with temperatures of 28ºc in Lloret today we have had blue skies but very rough seas, the red flags were flying on the beach meaning no swimming was allowed. It didnt seem to spoil anyones enjoyment though as todays pctures show the beach in Fenals was still very busy with holidaymakers.

Lloret de Mar in September

September and things are a little quieter in Lloret just now that, the holiday makers that do come at this time of year like a more leisurely pace...and at least the weather is holding out for them! This morning it didnt look as though the sun was going to make an appearance, but just now we have a temperature of 24º c with a little light cloud. Ideal for lazing on the beach or around the pool, or taking a trip on the para sailing to view the resort from high in the sky!!

Lloret de Mar late night Shopping

A new event is planned for tomorrow night (Fri 21st Sept) in the centre of Lloret, this is the first of the 'Lloret Night Shopping' and  there seems to be quite a bit of interest by what I have been hearing so far. Apart from the stores which will be open until after 12 midnight it seems lots of other activities will be happening in and around the shopping streets. Live music, a fashion show and a glasses of champagne will be given out for those walking through the town. It should be a great fiesta atmosphere and bring quite a lot of trade to the local stores. One of the shops 'Celio' the mens fashion store in San Pedro are urgently asking for 2 male models to take part...any of you local lads out there need a bit of work!

A trip to Montserrat

 Montserrat is visited by hundreds of thousands of people every year, they all have their own reason for coming to the monastery, some for spiritual reasons, some to listen to the world famous boys choir, some people come for the hiking opportunities around the mountain tracks, and also mountain climbers who like the challenging climbs of the sheer mountain sides. 
Whatever your reason its a trip you will remember for the rest of your life...the scenery is stunning!
 The trip up the mountain can be done in 2 stages by the funicular railway.
Visit the Montserrat website to find detail of how to get there and all about the history etc of the Monastery.

Lloret de Mar Shopping

 I was up and about quite early this morning so I went to see what was on offer in Lloret at the last day of the sales. Some of the best bargains were at the better shops such as Juanola, Benetton and Mango, with the other stores selling just about everything you could think of...bags, shoes, toiletries, perfumes and even bathroom accessories!
Stalls near the church
All that glitters is only €2 !!
