Snow in the City

It was snowing in the skies above Barcelona yesterday! And fell as ice pellets or USA sleet (sleet in the UK is a mix of rain and snow). The last time it snowed in Barcelona was I think in February or March 2010. It turned into slush before the day was out. I had to walk nearly half the city back as the metro came to a standstill. My feet froze walking back to my bike, then my hands froze to the handlebars pushing it back!

Thankfully yesterday it had stopped by the time I left to cycle in. I thought it had all melted so you can imagine my surprise and big dopey grin when I saw the beaches had a light dusting of snow ice. One of the few places where it hadn’t melted. Even a few TV Continue reading “Snow in the City”

Weekend Friday Favourites

Nothing all week then, 2 posts in 1 day. Let’s just say someone made time to do something else she loves other than working out and sorting out that pile of books that’s been building up. 

I hope you’re having a great weekend! Once again I’m left on a Sunday wondering where the week went. It went by with its usual workouts, runs, cleaning up after the cats (do all male species miss aim peeing?), catching up with friends and working on a better routine. I’ve identified where non productive time goes vs chores, Continue reading “Weekend Friday Favourites”

Chasing Light. Pink Sky At Night

No Weekend Friday Favourites this week. If I’ve only posted once during the week I feel it’s a bit OTT to go look at what I found, look at what made me smile! This week’s been a little crazy, vets, all the Christmas wrapping, cards and Post Office in one day (I wasn’t kidding when I said I leave things to the last minute) and pressing snooze one to many times causing a knock on effect of being busy not productive. However being busy, running late sometimes means you catch an amazing sunset or reverse sunset as I did cycling Monday. So I’ll leave you a few photos chasing light and surfers.

I’m always in awe how the winter light refracts through the atmosphere resulting in sunsets that light up the sky. I’m Continue reading “Chasing Light. Pink Sky At Night”

Late August Catch Up

Summer’s being bittersweet this week. The days are hot, the wind’s been enough to make me nearly cry cycling in, mostly when I really don’t need it to be so windy, yet provides a little respite from the heat when not sprint cycling and beach temps are prefect for sneak way beach siestas. The bitter sweetness, sunrises are later and sunsets earlier and September starts in a week signals Autumn Fall’s arrival. However there’s still 5 weeks of my favourite season, plenty of time to be outside as much possible soaking up that warm sunshine!

I hope you’re having a great week! I’ve been getting to the gym early at the cost of Continue reading “Late August Catch Up”

Mid/Late Spring Zoo Photos Part 1

I’ve been keeping zoo photos to a minimum for a while. Mainly to avoid repeats, same old, does she ever take photos other than at the zoo. Sometimes! 

I know when studying animals especially their behaviour you’re not meant to apply anthropomorphism. Likening human behaviour, traits, mannerisms to animals. It’s hard not to when the chimps are waiting Continue reading “Mid/Late Spring Zoo Photos Part 1”
