We ate at the bakery again this morning, and then headed down La Rambla towards the beach. It was kind of cloudy when we left, but by the time we reached the sand, the clouds were breaking and it was lovely. The sea was still freezing, though. Only Carly was smart enough to stay out of the water. From then on, the day was lovely, and was actually warm enough from time to time that I didn't need to wear my jacket. I wish it would get like that in England. Maybe it does in the summer.
For lunch we ate at a restaurant Shannon's meet-a-family suggested. The name means "snails," and my Spanish/Catalan isn't good enough for me to be confident trying to spell the name. The food was very good, and I especially liked the bread; it was shaped like a snail! I took a picture of it, just for the memory. We had to order the cheapest things on the menu, however, because it was a bit of a pricy restaurant. One thing I've noticed about restaurants in Europe is that they're generally a bit more expensive than back in the States, and that the menus are smaller. Every place we've eaten at only has one page to their menu, while back home, we may have two or three pages, at least.
After lunch, we went up to the Sagrada Familia, which turned out to be not as impressive as I had in my head. It was still very interesting and beautiful, although I certainly like the older bits than the new stuff on the back.
From the Sagrada Familia, we went to Parc Guell, which was beautiful, of course. The mosaics were especially lovely. Carly and I finally finished our souvenir shopping, and then we went back to La Rambla for dinner.
Tomorrow we will arrive back at the manor just in time for the Easter Egg Hunt, but I may not go, I'll be so tired! We'll see.
I loved Barcelona, and I definitely want to go back and spend more time there! Especially in Parc Guell!
