Day at the beach and Parc Guell

Today was a scorcher, so when we got up we went for a long walk along the port to the city beaches. They were nothing flash (NZ really does have the best!) but it's pretty cool having beaches right in the middle of an awesome city. We walked along for a while until we needed to escape the heat -in the nearest beach side bar of course! We had a couple of cocktails just to be different, and shared some tapas. We stayed here for ages just relaxing, and decided that while it was nice weather we would go to Gaudi's famous Parc Guell for a look. We got on the nearest metro, and although it was only about a 20 minute ride it had magically clouded over by the time we got there! Which was annoying because blue sky would have made a much better background for the photos. It's a very long walk up a very very steep hill to get to the park, but luckily they also have a few outdoor escalators in between steps nearer the top, or we might not have made it!!!
