A nostalgic taste of home - Part 2

Morning amigos!

As promised, here is the second part of our adventures to the Delta de l'Ebre.
After stopping a few times to look at the bulls and the flamingos we eventually arrived at Poblenou del Delta de l'Ebre. And it just looks like Beauduc, a wild surfer's beach in Carmargue that was once a free spirited place where people would built up cabins in the dunes and live there during "les beaux jours". As a kid, I used to go there with my auntie and her friends and their adorable green 2CV and camp there, make a fire and sleep in an A frame tent. I have some beautiful childhood memories of this place and discovering this beach made me feel so nostalgic and happy.

When we arrived to this strip of land we were stunned by the natural beauty in front of us. One side of the strip was the Mediterranean sea, on the other side was the salted pond where mirages happen and people would walk on the water, or so we thought for a moment!

The dogs were having the time of their lives, even Came who hates water! Borja did a beautiful post about these two by the way. They were so fun to play with, we could have stayed there for hours!

After a while playing in the shallow water, we went back to the car with the wet doggies and drove to the end of the strip, getting narrower and narrower. At the end we could see the salt factory, and on the other side of the pond, quite far away was some almost invisible mountains.

Pylons growing in the sea, a bottle without a message and a very dirty dress from wet dogs, sand and salt.
We where exhausted, had a little nap on the sand, and decided we would have to come back, longer this time. This place is magic.

A nostalgic taste of home - Part 1

The other weekend we were having itchy feet and our friends Sarie and Borja proposed us to go for a day trip to Delta de l'Ebre. I always wanted to go there as it is just like where I am from, the Camargue. Beautiful salty swamps with pink flamingos and bulls. LOVE. IT.

I thought I'd share with you some photos from both places as they are close to my heart.

Let's start with PART 1 of Delta de l'Ebre.
We left early(ish) in the morning with two dogs who were a little over excited. That was fun. Two hours. Two dogs. One car.


Bim! We arrived at the first place the satnav sent us, which at first glance looked like another tacky Spanish beach. But we were wrong, very wrong. After going through the little path beside a crappy bar we got stunned by the beautiful dunes and the little wooden pathway.

After walking a few minutes we ended up on a quiet and wide beach that reminded me of the south of France so much I got a little excited and giddy. It was so peaceful, you never see that around Barcelona, hence why I don't like going to the beach there.

We attempted to have a picnic, but with the dogs unleashed it was impossible, they were going crazy, running at people who were being a bit mardy, so we kept them on a leash. Not the best solution neither, I got a bit overwhelmed, as a pretty new dog owner I felt very clueless. Baku kept jumping on the food and Came ran over us with his gigantic wooden sticks. Ha! Oh these crazy doggies, I love them though. They're dope!

We then left in an attempt to find the actual delta, with the salted pond. Back in the car with the dogs who were wet and sandy but pooped.
After driving around for a bit we arrived to this land from another world, we knew we were on the right way. It was like being in Camargue, but in another galaxy.

See the flamingos Came?
