Barcelona Day 4: Waterfront on a sunny winter day

IMG_9422

Barcelona is one of those unique cities with a mix of old and new, city and nature.

I love that you can spend an entire day exploring the centuries old gothic quarter and then laze on a beach with modern sculptures and hotels the next.

I also love the idea of enjoying the beach in winter!

During our stay in Barcelona, we were fortunate to get a beautiful sunny day on the beach. It wasn’t exactly warm enough to swim in the ocean, but it was pleasant enough to stroll the boardwalk and enjoy a nice meal.

Here are some shots of our day at the waterfront.
