Swimming with friends is the best and what a stunning Spanish bay to do it in. I swam out to Elaine and her pals to the collective sound of ‘awwwww’ from the beach. Allegedly my turning circle is that of a large ship but my front leg speed is still unsurpassed. It was truly gorgeous.
We’re in Cadaques for 3 weeks of eating, drinking and mooching. The scenery is beautiful, quite luna at Cap de Creus and cutesy cobbled in the old town. And then there’s the culture of Dali’s house, especially the swimming pool bol.
Of course it wouldn’t be an adventure without a panicked trip to the local vet. Inadvertently I got an insect, type unknown, stuck under my tongue which nibbled through half my mouth. So far 24 hours of swollen face, dribbling, not drinking and Elaine syringing water through my teeth. Paw holding, screaming (Doris not me) at the extremely nice vet, antibiotics et al and stress. But hey, I ate that blighter.
Dogs on site – none but a wild boar visits every evening, barks in astonishment!
