Lloret de Mar November Weather

The weather is much cooler today in Lloret...but quite understandable as we approach the end of November! Some rain has fallen through the night and the current temperature is only 10ºc on the coast, and the humidity has been very high for several days now. We can now say that winter is definatley here, but just for today we can take a look back to the blue skies and warmer temperatures of only about 3 weeks ago!

Classic Cars in Lloret

 We were very disappointed about the number of cars which were on show during Saturdays Classic car event! More than 100 cars were predicted to take part from 10am and throughout the day, but where were they?
At midday there was a total of only eight!!
If more did bother turn up later in the day then it was far too late for those who came to see them at the advertised time!
A note to Lloret events organisers....'Must do better'!!

Sant Roma Festival

One of this weeks events for Sant Roma festival was yesterdays show for some of the dogs which are available for adoption. All those which were wearing a red neckerchief were needing a good home, I wasnt tempted but I hope some were lucky! Many of the local people were there with their own dogs, some of which they entered into the obedience event....very funny at times!

Lloret in November

 Lloret in November and we are still getting days when its warm enough to sit out and have a drink on the seafront in Lloret. The prices at these restaurant / bars which overlook Lloret beach are now the best they have ever been, some are serving 'menu del dia' for as little as €12 or coffee and cake for about €2.50!
The best views in town!

Fira Medieval - Lloret

Handmade glass ware.
There was a great atmosphere in Lloret centre last night, the Medieval festival has certainly brought a lot of people into times it was hard to get through the crowded streets. I'm glad to say the weather has stayed fine for this years event, it was a beautiful evening yesterday as we were taking these photos. The usual stalls were there, most of which were demonstrating just how they make the items which they were selling. Today is the final day and again it looks as though its going to be a nice day for those who are in town this weekend. Just now there are a few light clouds about but I'm sure the sun will be breaking through shortly!   
(more photos tomorrow)
Hungry ??

 A colourful stall selling hand made wooden toys!
 I wonder what the dog is seeing here....dinner perhaps?
Watching the parade go by!

Lloret de Mar Market

 After the annual second-hand market event was postponed due to the bad weather it finally went ahead last Sunday. It gave the locals who wanted to take part a chance to clear out their unwanted items and earn a few Euros for their efforts. There were also many stalls selling new stuff, probably discontinued stock from some of the local businesses. For anyone wanting a stall here (the cost this year was €25) you must first of all register at one of the designated shops in the El Reiral district. Everything you could possibly think of was on sale at this years market...even the local sex shop had a stall! 

 Great shoes and boots but not suitable for walking along the bumpy streets of Lloret!!

 One stall that did catch my eye was the one selling celebration cakes and cup cakes, I have a few more photos of this stall which I will be showing later and also details of how you can contact the stall holder if you need a cake for your celebration !
