The Day of Parks

Today we again caught the 41 bus to the Arc de Triomphe. From there we walked up the magnificent Passeig de Lluis Companys up to the Parc de la Cuitadella, where we admired the modernista Museu de Zoologia and the massive fountain with its dragon guards...


Though I think quite frankly that the family were more impressed with the mammoth we met there:


Thus inspired, we headed to the zoo, (also part of the park) to see some real animals



Once we'd finished at the zoo, which took a while... we had a very generous, tasty and cheap lunch at a little cafe just around the corner, before heading up to Parc Guell, another Gaudi creation, which was just a photographic paradise for me, (I think everyone else quite enjoyed it too...)
Here's a "small" sample!!!








After that we returned to the hotel for a swim and then we went to a creperie for tea... very nice it was too!!
