We stayed in Salou just to have some time for walks on the beach. Normally Salou is a place packed full of tourists, but we had the beach nearly to ourselves and only at the weekend the Spanish themselves would come to take in the sea and run, walk and cycle along the endless promenades.
Myriam also had cats – 3 of them, all in the apartment. Nigel’s slight allergy against cat hair didn’t bother him too much, but cats on the breakfast table are a deal-breaker.
We had long walks on the deserted beach and also spent a day in Tarragona. The day in Tarragona was well spent visiting the ancient pre-christian burial sites, the ancient walled town and the museum, as it was a rainy cool day best spent inside.
