Collioure, France to Roses, Spain

The place we stayed at in Collioure is one of my favorite places we have stayed on the trip. Hotel La Casa Pairal is right across the street from the harbor so after breakfast we went for a lovely walk along the water out past the castle.

This is Collioure harbor.

We drove the slower scenic route from Collioure, our last stop in France to Roses in Spain, where we are now.

When we arrived at our hotel in Roses we had a picnic lunch. We still had a bottle of wine that we bought about a week ago. Roger quoted the proverb “Wine before beer never fear, beer before wine is fine.” Duke said “That’s from the Bible!” I about died laughing. In any case we drank the wine with lunch.

About 6:30 we drove into Roses and walked along the waterfront. It was very windy. Although the temp was in the high fifties it felt cold.

Duke and Roger make friends wherever they go.

The restaurant we wanted to go to, Rom, opened at 7:45. We had a fabulous dinner
