Especial Esponella

We have spent a sunny week at Camping Esponella and we love it here.  They have a heated pool and every day I have been to practise my diving.  It was really busy at the weekend but we had the pool all to ourselves the rest of the week.
Here I am
I also got dragged on a walk every day as there were lots of tracks to follow through the woods and along the banks of the River Fluvia.

I am sure that Mama's main reason for coming back here was the restaurant in the village.  We had a fabulous dish of pork ribs with chestnuts.  It is called Can Roca and it has female chefs and has passed from Grandmother to daughter for generations.

I had asparagus and mountain jamon.  Both of which I like because I don't get nagged to use a knife and fork.
Behind the village you get a great view of the pair of knees.  And there are lots of woods
Can't see the wood
And then back to the pool.

There is also a lovely bakery in the village that does rubbish bread but great coffee.

Anyway when we walking back yesterday we saw a snake.
Mama said it wasn't poisonous but I noticed her taking the photos from a good distance a way.
It soon wiggled off.
Oh. Did I mention that the campsite also has a crazy golf with a big plastic rabbit in the middle of it.
Mama thinks she is very funny

  1. Plastic rabbit? It looks like daddy to me! Lovely adventures and SO very exciting about your diving, Joe. One day you'll be able to have a diving bottle on your back and discover the fun of being below the water with all the life that goes on there. You are such a clever boy - so proud of you. Lots of love to you and mama and daddy from tonton David and Tati Suzy
