Young storks almost ready to fly
Another trip to Empuriabrava today to do some shopping. The drive was much different again with the vines now quite large, hay being rolled up and fields of giant sunflowers all facing in the same direction smiling at the sun. A herd of goats was moving about in one field of grass almost as tall as they were. Lots of munching here.
After our shopping it was time for lunch at Sobres, a brand new restaurant opened by the owners of the Blue Sky cafe. When you pick the menu of the day, you can eat a three course meal for a very reasonable price. I started out with endive with roquefort foam and walnuts. It was delicious. Next was the grilled sea bass in a sauce with a perfectly grilled whole onion. Tart lemon sorbet finished off a delicious meal.
Next stop was the beautiful seventy-metre-wide sandy Empuriabrava beach. We had taken our swimming gear with us but it was extremely windy with the sand blowing everywhere so we decided to save this beach for another time.
