Barcelona Dreaming...

Last week, I was in lovely Barcelona, surrounded by palm trees and sunshine

and luscious fruits temptingly displayed at the local market.

I tasted rich churros and hot, thick chocolate to dip them in

more sweet treats than I could count

and delicious tapas made with seafood and caviar

roasted vegetables, olive oil, herbs, and cheese... oh yum!

I was lucky enough to view Gaudi's architecture by day

and by night


and outside on the rooftop terrace by sunset.

I soaked up the colors of Gaudi's mosaics

and rested on the curved benches at Park Guell.

From high above the city, I strained my eyes to see the sea

and peeked below to watch Spanish schoolboys play a lively game of soccer.

Barcelona was wonderful and I'm sure I will be back,

but for right now, I know two Flamenco dancers who make me laugh and smile!

Hope you have been having some fun adventures of your own!

Sending hugs from snowy Munich today :)
