Along the beach, Barcelona, Spain

While in Barcelona, it’s fun to simply stroll along the promenade that fronts the beach. Here people come to exercise, take a dip in the ocean, to see and be seen.

There are also several marinas and yacht basins where you can tie up your boat or check out those belonging to others.

You’ll also find the W Hotel. Here’s the long view of it in the distance:

There are plenty of places to eat and drink as well. Here’s a look at one:

Of course there are many others, so you’ll have plenty of options for food. Here’s a close look at the W Hotel thanks to my wide angle lens:

I ended my walk at this spot because it’s a convenient place to get a taxi. While traveling, be sure to do plenty of sightseeing on foot.

A Place to Thaw Your Bones

Here’s a view of the beach in Aruba, which is a good place to thaw your bones.

Beautiful Beach in Aruba.

The water is warm, the sand soft, the sun bright. If you’re in a less hospitable climate, consider a visit. It will do you good! (I can recommend a few good books to read while you’re here!)

Beam on the Beach, Aruba

Certainly Jim Beam is a fine bourbon whiskey and Palm Beach, Aruba, is a great stretch of sand. Why not enjoy them both at the same time?

That’s a fine combination when done in moderation or just a little bit more. Do you have a favorite drink for the beach? Bon dia.

Office Extension, Aruba

Not sure which part of the office this happens to be, but I was working on some story material yesterday at The Beach Bar, located on Palm Beach, Aruba. Here’s the photo:

My temporary office extension, Aruba.

Took the old Mont Blanc pen and put it to good use. This is the one that was recently repaired. Performed perfectly, as did the Jack Daniel’s to the left. Very nice view here, just a few steps away from Scott’s Brats, in front of the Playa Linda, where I would have been but they’re closed on Sunday. Have to swing by today to fuel up. Bon dia and keep reading!
