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:

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.

Oranjestad Marina Panorama

Oranjestad features a convenient marina located just across the street from a major hotel/casino complex.

You’ll find all kinds of boats, both large and small here. For those interested in fishing, you’ll find charter boats for hire. Then there are the yachts that I have posted before. In the distance, you’ll see the bow of a cruise ship along the main wharf. Finally, don’t be surprised if you seeĀ a tugboat or two loitering.

Bon dia.
