Spanish holiday 2011

                                     
                         Some pictures of the stunning scenery around Girona and the Costa Brava

                                       The first few are in and around the Pyrenees mountains



                                            Lots and lots of cattle grazed Hawthorn in this area

Some wild flowers in the mountains


Face in the root of a Beech tree
Prehistoric burial chamber in the mountains behing Girona

The whole area was covered with Cork Oak
Huge swaithes of Cork Oak


Wierdly pruned Pines on the coast
Wonderful bark colours

                                                           Limestone cliffs and caves
Some of the coastal flora
Pines fighting for survival



Medieval street in Pals
                                        And the most picturesque of them all in his swimwear
