Six word Saturday

6ws-participating-in-bannerBarcelona- a feast for the senses!

You knew I'd get there, didn't you?

You knew I’d get there, didn’t you? Fabulous Casa Batllo!

I’ve been overwhelmed by all your birthday messages and good wishes, and would simply like to say thank you to my wonderful blogging friends.  I will be slow getting back to you as I have a zillion things to do and 600+ photos to sort through.  I just wanted to let you know that Barcelona fully lived up to expectations, and to share a few thoughts.

I've never seen anything more beautiful than Parc Guell!

Or heard anything more noisy than these geese gaggling!

Or heard anything more noisy than the geese, gaggling at the Cathedral!

Or been more surprised by a hospital!

Or loved detail more!

And patriotism!

With a dash of patriotism!

Or loved Christmas decorations more, even before they've been lit!

Or taken a more wonky photograph in a famous loo!

Or seen more boats!

And definitely not bigger or more smiley boats!

But you know what the finale is, don’t you?  Never have I been more in awe of a piece of architecture!  It is magnificent!

  1. Thank you for this page.
    I especially liked the ship with the Eye.
    It reminded me of my adventure on a steel hull boat built in Canada it looked and was rigged as a Chinese junk.
    Painted black with an eye very similar to the ship in your photo.
    Except this boat was weathered and rusty with its name ” No fin wong” in red letters outlined in yellow.
    What a memory to you trigged.
