Today was a multi-modal day. We biked/walked the half-mile or so from the hotel to the harbor where we loaded out bikes, and then ourselves, on a small boat and took an hour and a half cruise to the port city of Roses. It was a very attractive small city, with a very active and immaculately clean fishing pier with markets selling the fresh seafood. After a leisurely coffee, we boarded our bikes and rode the 20 miles to the city of Figueres our destination for this evening. As promised, we still had some head winds and tail winds (the "tramuntana" -- I have finally learned the name) for the first part of the ride, but we had a nice tail wind for the second half.

This afternoon we had an English language guided tour of the Dali museum, the second most visited museum in Spain (the Prado in Madrid is first.) We only had an hour and a half -- I think I could easily spend several days or a week there. It was truly a highlight of this trip.
Dinner beckons, so I will close for today. Another great day in Spain. Hasta manana
