Following the gorgeous sunset of Monday, we had a day and night of rain. We need the rain and thankfully we got over two inches.
Wednesday we woke to mostly sunny (okay maybe partly sunny but I’m an optimist) skies and decided to get out and run some errands in Sitges. We had a wander along the seafront to watch the waves. Wow!
The police had closed off the stairs below the church as the waves were crashing over them.
Of course, there always has to be someone who doesn’t think they should be kept out. Note the person at the bottom right of the stairs where the crashing wave sent a rush of water. Seriously what is wrong with people?!
Debris in the water from one of the last beach kiosks. Luckily no one was swimming in this area.
We went further down the seafront to Sausalito Beach where we always sunbath and where our favorite beach restaurant is.
The restaurant is closed for the season but they hadn’t removed the sun chairs and decking yet. Thankfully the waves only shifted things a bit but didn’t wash them away.
“The sea was an abstract painting: a band of azure sky above a swatch of indigo water above a ribbon of wet brown sand above a smear of hazel beach… It seemed like the kind of place you might encounter in dreams: too raw and wild to be real, yet somehow familiar at the same time, an ancient impression belonging to my species, imprinted in my genetic code, a knowledge deeper than memory.”
