Enjoying Cadaques in fine fall weather
At night time there are far fewer lights from houses in the village. Many stores in the village are closed. The gelato stores have been closed from the middle of September but now even the deli is closed except on the weekends, another deli and bread shop is closed for October and the chicken rotisserie shop is open only on the weekends. I was going to shop at the "other" supermarket a couple of days ago only to find that every shelf was stripped. The store will open next year. Worst of all the coast guard dismantled the buoys marking the swimming area and removed the raft. The weather is still warm so this was a little premature.
We continued our walk around the back lanes of Cadaques admiring the still flowering mauve and pink bougainvillea that climbed high on the stone faced buildings. Many of the pathways were just cut out of the rock and many houses had rocky outcrops as part of their foundations and ground floors. Finally, we ended up back down at the sea front admiring the sun's rays making a pattern through the fast moving clouds.
We are looking forward to returning to Cadaques soon to have a special meal at Casa Anita.
