After a few days avoiding bad weather and then soaking in the sights and sun of Barcelona, we continued our drive south along the Mediterranean coast of Spain. Hello, Montserrat. Sorry, no time to explore. Must find flip flop weather.
Some of the amazing farmhouses we’ve seen on our drives.
Made it to Parc del Natural de l’Ebre, the largest wetland in Catalonia. There is a free RV parking lot there and it was a prefect way to decompress from big city living for a couple nights.
In the past they used to wetlands to pan salt and hunt. Nowadays its a wildlife preserve.
Old hunting house that was built in the 1920s from a kit shipped from Canada.
It’s now part of the visitor’s center, surrounded by some mules and birds.
Oh and some cats too.
Last night while hanging out in the van, we heard the sad news of Kobe Bryant’s death and didn’t sleep very well while refreshing the news over and over again. So inside of driving the next day, we just took it easy.
And enjoyed each other and our surroundings. Can you spot the two Greater Flamingos in the water?:
Lookout towers are placed all along the delta for bird watching.
We also met a few other travelers during our stay here thanks to our Californian plates.
Calm older black dog who warmed up to the kids. Crazy 9 month old white puppy who got crazier with the kids.
For roadschool today, we went to an afternoon bird walk with the goal of properly identifying five different bird species.
Mila ready to make a list.
The kids are learning to be quiet….
…but sometimes not quiet enough.
Sharing one pair of binoculars. Luka’s turn.
Here’s a video Dan put together during our time here. Enjoy.
