... have also never ever seen a queue as long either but it is well worth it! every morning we would get 2 different pastries and we bought a glass bottle for €2 and the nice lady fills it with freshly squeezed orange juice for 55 cents! Breakfast of champions! Next would be the crucial decision of pool or beach... For the first 2 days we went to the pool where we could layout on the grass and have a few games of ping pong (I still haven't won a game yet grrrr) the last 2 days ...

a delightful, but full, cove. There were many boats attached torocks but we just anchored. It was pretty tight and luckily the catamaran anchored near us left in the evening so we reanchored wherethey were, which proved to be the right decision as the wind picked

Yesterday we packed up and went to Girona. We walked around the old town, browsing in the shops and walked up to the cathedral. Chris, Les, Sarah and Jacob went inside while the rest of us waited and had a drink. Sadly, Tony's cancer got worse in the early hours of yesterday morning. He was rushed off to Girona hospital, it's not looking good. Wow, we just had a call, Tony has revived! I do wonder if Doctors really know what they are ...
