Yesterday I took 126 pictures; today I only took four, so I will catch up with a couple more from yesterday. Here you see the hotel dining room in the hotel Duran that I mentioned, and then a photo of the group of us (ten riders and three guides) outside the Dali Museum. It was the last time we would all be together, since Gary, Sybil and Amy left this morning for their tour in Majorca, and Montse is off to lead a tour on the Camino de Santiago. We stopped a local cyclist and asked him to take the picture so that we could all be in it. Imagine his surprise when we handed him at least half a dozen phones and cameras to take pictures with. He was a great sport about it.
Today we left the flat plains surrounding Girona and headed further inland toward the "serralada transversal" mountain range. Toward the end of the ride we entered the Natural Park and Volcanic area of "La Garroxta." It is an area with much more rainfall and heavily forested.
We stopped in Banyoles for
|Hotel Duran Dining Room
|In front of the Dali Museum, Figueres
|Tramuntana street --named after the winds that we have been expeiencing
|The lake at Banyoles
Tonight we will have dinner as a group. I expect that it will be much quieter than the loud and fun-filled dinner that we had last night in Figueres as we bid farewell to those whose tour was ending at that point.
