The Delta’s Beach

When we went to the Delta del Llobregat, in Barcelona, Spain, it was during a World Environment Day event. We were taken in a small group to the beach where the river meets the sea with two guides that showed us the different kinds of shells and sea creatures that you could find. Normal touristy beaches are cleaned every morning and seeing so many shells was extremely comforting. Finally, a natural beach!

Read more about our day here.

The beach is publicly accessible and not technically part of the park, but it isn’t cleaned either and there are no obnoxious bars

Cuttlefish eggs! Most probably taken to shore accidentally after a storm. I tried opening a few (they were doomed) but only gelatinous goo slipped out….no baby cuttlefish

We also learnt that these molluscs don’t have an up and a down but a left and a right, and that it’s really easy to tell which side is which

Complete Happiness: Early morning. Sun, with a breeze; a pond with water lilies. A house, with a garden, full of plants. A vegetable patch, lemon, orange and mandarin trees. Cosmos everywhere. Birds in the trees; a tortoise eating the salad from the vegetable patch; a mammal (I couldn’t decide which one would make me happier) close by. No houses for as far as the eye can see. Me, a man that loves me and that I love. Friends coming over for a lunch that I have to prepare, and have all the ingredients for all ready in the kitchen.
