Our first stop this morning was at the Dali Museum in Figueroa. Dali created the museum as a monument for his work.
From Figueres we drove to our Parador outside of Vic. We overlook Sau reservoir and tree covered mountains.
For dinner we ate in the Parador. Duke and I had octopus.
With chocolate mousse for desert.
We are staying in a hotel near Roses, Catalonia that was originally an old farmhouse built in 1582.
Today we drove about thirty miles east to visit the house where Salvador Dali lived for more than forty years. The house is as he left it after his wife died. It is small, quirky and in a beautiful setting on the edge of the Mediterranean.
After enjoying the house and garden we drove into the nearby town of Cadaqués for lunch. The day started overcast but turned sunny. We sat in an outdoor restaurant by the beach and enjoyed our lunch and the scenery while we people watched the Saturday visitors.
Back at our hotel we napped then played bridge until it was time for dinner.
For dinner we went to another great restaurant in Roses recommended by the hotel owner. At Falconera We shared a fig salad, I had a fish stew and Duke had cuttlefish. The prawns and anchovies were local.
