A walk on the beach

After yet another shopping excursion to Empuriabrava we decided to go for a walk on the beach. It wasn't really picnic weather as there is a cold front coming from Russia and it is definitely a bit cooler. This meant a quick trip to the Blue Sky cafe, which has a very talented Italian chef. Once we were fortified with handmade pear and cheese ravioli and an illy coffee we headed off to see if we could walk across the sand where the Muga River reaches the sea. Not quite so we drove past the Auiguamolls nature park along country roads until we found one that led to the beach.

We were the only people on the more than fifty-metre-wide Sant Pere de Pescador beach except for one person on a surf board with a paddle breaking through the big, white waves. We walked and walked until we could see a river up ahead and it was time to make the return trip to the car with my pocket filled with some lovely shells. This is going to become one of our regular walks and I can't wait until it is beach weather. What a fabulous spot.
