Lloret de Mar Carrefoc event

Thousands of people filled the streets around the town hall last night to see this years 'Carrefoc' - an exciting event which is held every year as part of the Santa Cristina Festival. Everyone gathered at the town hall at 10pm where drummers played before the fireworks started.

 Not to be confused with the popular organised fireworks display we see on Lloret beach every year - this does look to be quite an unruly event where those taking part run along the streets letting off fireworks just above the crowds heads....but a lot of thought does seem to have gone into the event to make it as safe as possible. On seeing the photos you wouldn't think that it is well organised with fire safety personnel and vehicles following them all the way, although I'm sure accidents must have happened in the past. Those taking part are advised to wear jackets, hoods, full length trousers and full shoes.....some are dressed as  Devils and other spooky and scary characters!

Hot summer nights in Lloret!

 With recent daytime temperatures in the high 30s, the streets of Lloret during the evenings are almost bursting at the seams with everyone enjoying the cooler temperatures! These photos taken just last night 19th July between the hour of 8.30pm and 11pm show how busy Lloret is just was a slow start to the season but Lloret de Mar has that familiar buzz about town once again!

A Visit to Playa de Aro

 A treat for the boating fans taking their holidays in Lloret de Mar would be a trip up the coast to the town of Playa de Aro. To the south of the resort is a beautiful marina where you can take a stroll to view all the boats which range from the smallest sail boat to the larger and much more expensive yachts. At Playa de Aro there is also a fantastic shopping area so maybe this could be a good opportunity for the ladies to go shopping while the men do a bit of wishful thinking while taking a look around the marina at the boats!

What a strange place to plant such a large tree - on the roof terrace of this apartment block, I'm glad I don't live on the next floor down!
