Throw Back Thursday // Down in the West Country

As we tumble through autumn into the beginnings of winter I think longingly back to my weekend in the west country. Ah, May!

Barcelona

At the very beginning of April a friend and I spent a long weekend in Barcelona. It was pretty wonderful! The weather was so-so but it didn’t stop us walking many miles over the course of four days.

Looking at the results of both I will admit I regret not taking my bigger camera,…
