Abroad {week 8}: Spain

This last week revolved largely around the community pool in our neighborhood. It opened a week beforehand but it rained every day. The kids and I spent almost every day at the pool last week! Thank goodness for sunshine! It was great. We also had San Juan night in Spain!! (http://goo.gl/GuVcih). That was huge. My Friday and Saturday were recovery days.

Do you remember the castle ruins I posted about stumbling upon? I took Tatiana. She LOVED it. We will return. I took DSLR photos this time so blog post coming soon.

We also visited the Tower of Hercules last Monday. Blog post coming soon on that, too! WOW, I'm busy with amazing stories!! Can't complain about that:)

6.20 / 9:05 ante meridiem // A beautiful morning in front of the Tower of Hercules. This place is incredible. Wildflowers, stones, natural paths, the ocean, and an ancient, Roman lighthouse that is still being used today all surround me!

6.24 / 7:13 ante meridiem // So on Friday, the day following San Juan, I laid in bed feeling sick all day. This photo was taken before I even got home and went to bed but I'm counting it because it's obviously morning time at this point. This was my view while waiting on a cab to take me home.

6.25 / 3:14 post meridiem // On Saturday, I was craving salad. I treated myself to a massive Spanish lunch because that's the norm here. I ate this right on the beach. The fried things to the left are croquetas. ermagherd so good.

6.26 / 7:20 post meridiem // On Sunday I took a bus to Coruna and explored the city for a bit. Then I took the bus back that stopped near Santa Cristina. My previous food photos, and almost every beach photo of mine, is from Santa Cristina. I love it there. These floating boats with slides were lined up on the beach yesterday. I have a hunch that they were used for San Juan night. Santa Cristina is not the beach I went to on San Juan night but it is a popular beach for families to attend for the annual festival.
