Barcelona, a photo a day

Barceloneta by the sea


Lat Sunday, I took a swallow. Yes. Spanish: una golondrina, which is one of those little boats you can take along the coast. Barcelona, seen from the sea.
This is Barceloneta beach, one of the most popular ones. We have here a long string of beaches, 7 or 8 of them, all along the town. You can’t really be far away from the next beach, which is very enjoyable! The beach was obviously very crowded, although the sky was kind of greyish-white, and the sea pretty choppy. I’ll show you a bit more in the next few days.
What you see in the back is the church in Tibidado. Will come back to this as well, some time soon. Stay tuned!

  1. Nice trait of coast, the weather looks excellent.
    I think your golondrina is not so far from the Italian, or at least Tuscan, 'gabbianella' (little seagull) for the same boat.

    Great 'row' of colourful buildings! Also love the blue sea. Great shot!

    By the way, I really enjoyed your comment on 'Baywatch'! 🙂

  7. It's very festive with the different colors of the buildings and then the lovely blue ocean. A very interesting cloud also.

  12. I like this photo, with the view of the church in Tibidado. I am excited to hear / see more of Tibidado as I know a little of the legend. 🙂

  13. It will be my pleasure to stay tuned. This is a glorious reverse sea scape, Rob. Thanks you for this point of view. I feel like a dolphin spying on the world of man.
