Another Day of Climbing

Our friends left on Saturday morning.  We spent the day cleaning the house, doing laundry, going grocery shopping and getting into bed early.

On Sunday we decided to go to a new climbing area about 40 minutes from us.  It's called Bellavista. Normally we don't climb on Sunday because it's usually crowded, but it was a beautiful day and we hadn't been climbing in a week, so we took a chance.

Our cliff is the one way at the top left.

It's about a 30 minute hike up to the cliff, not too bad and really pretty.  There weren't many people there, we got lucky.  We met some climbers from Girona, they spoke english and were really nice telling us which climbs were good, hard, etc.  We climbed for most of the day, leaving at about 4:00.

It was really hot at the cliff too.  60 degrees at home and probably 70 at the cliff, since it's south facing and there wasn't a cloud in the sky.  No complaints from me though.

The weather for Girona for the next 10 days is sunny and between 60-68.  I'm a very happy girl.

What gorgeous deep blue skies! I can see why, if you love the heat, the Aveyron was not for you!

I just discovered your blog and I have to say it is amazing. That place looks a lot like the Canary Islands...

Betty - deep blue skies almost every day. It's not hot though, maybe mid 60's at the most, but the sun is what I love, hot or not. The last 2 weeks in France we didn't see the sun at all...I don't miss that.

Heidy - thanks for visiting my blog. We'd love to visit the canary islands one day, the climbing there is fantastic.
