Well vacation was great as usuall, allthough some shorter we really enjoyed it! Due to Esmee’s health we didnt go on as much outings and we stayed a lot on the camping, but yet it was fun, exciting and relaxing like every vacation should be! Offcourse we did take pictures, allthough not as much as usuall since every day on the camping was about the same. Breakfast, lucnh, dinner and relaxxing at the pool or at our caravan.
However the few trips we took where great and relaxing as well and I cant wait to share photos with you!!!
My 2 mermaids both enjoyed swimming, the pool was a good size, with a seperate part low water, and the other pool went from deep till deepest, and well especially mermaid Esmee enjoyed the deepest parts of the pool. I’m telling you if mermaids really excisted she has every right to claim that title. Esmee LOVES to swim. She wasnt allowed to do tricks in the water due to her ‘legnerves’ problems but she enjoyed swimming anyways!
Fish and waterplants in the sea at Roses, Spain.
Our own caravan with fronttent and the tent of the teens. Camping Mas Nou, EmpuriaBrava, Spain
Cadaques beach, 1 of the trips we took, the ride in the car was through the prenees mountains and breathtaking! This beach excisted of rocks and pebbels only. And Aranka loves to hunt fossiles on it, and she found a fossiled bone between all those stones.
The little village is situated near the ocean on a mountain and the little streets with white houses are all so enchanting!
Roses beach, those palmtrees are filled with wild parrots!
My DH’s best friend since age 9 with his family, his sister with her family and their parents where at the same camping! This is paella eveing, his father and bil prepared the paella and most teens loved to watch the preparation!
Bassegoda Parc, near Albanya in the middle of the prenees mountains. Here is the spring of the River La Muga and mountainwater streams in from flows, waterfalls and little tidewaves. An amazing nature parc, and you can swim there…..The following pictures are from this nature parc, where the kids jumped from scarry high rocks or played in waterfalls. Uhm I tried to stay dry and take pictures, yup I slides over algea rocks and thankfully my camera stayed dry, everything else was totally wet. But dry in 30 minutes due to the bright sun!
Can you spy Esmee on the next picture?
Well that was 1 great afternoon and we will revist there next year for sure. We didnt have watershoes, so Jer and me went on Crocs, the others all kept on their sneakers, next year we need to bring watershoes and I really need to explore the area more there!!!
EmpuriaBrava harbor, a little beach, a long harbor and wonderful seabreeze! I just love that photo of Jeroen!!!
Aranka was helping Manuël fishing, she loved it!!!
No idea how you call these flowers, we call them Orleanders, I love the smell and colors of these flowers, bright pinks, purples and whites, and what better picture then my youngest and her bright smile!
Scorpios, chameleons and little lizards. The chameleon vanished in thin air when I ran back and forward to the toiletbuilding where he was walking around. So sadly no pictures of him. The Scorpio was anooyed and ready to sting everything on his way, and I’m no hero. I walked a mile around it wearing my flipflops and he was angle up ready….yup no pictures of that creepy crawler. But the lizards, aw they where tiny and cute and since they have no teeth or angles awesome to take pictures of!!!
Well we explored a town for the local market and came across this roman bathhouse. I have no clue what town it was, but I just needed to take a picture of it :)
The picture doesnt show it really, but Esmee was bitten by insects like 100 times on her legs and arms. Most of the bites turned out purple huge spots and bruises. It was very painful and itchy and she really felt sick of it. We ended up in hospital for medication and treatment and after 2 days she could do without injections and needed pills only. Poor girl felt terrible, it seems her allergies also consist of insect bites.
The last evening in Spain, 3 tanned kiddos, my kiddos! We had a blast! We relaxxed a lot, the teens made friends, and Aranka had loads of friends as well. I can not wait to return there next year!!!
