Early this summer, we spent a couple of weeks driving along the northern coast of Spain as far as A Coruña. It’s a working town, lacking the glamour of San Sebastian, or Barcelona. However, it has great food and wine, a surf beach and a huge waterfront path. We walked it from the beach past the Roman lighthouse and down to the old town. The last part was lined with peach-coloured lampposts from the mid nineties, each of which had 4 ceramic (oops – enamel – thanks, Verónica!) works of art. They were all by the same artist, Julia Ares.
We are just back from an overnight trip to Pamplona. It’s a very green city, with a lot of parkland and there are some good environmental initiatives (we saw a commercial cargo bicycle go by and there are some wonderful veggie gardens just outside of the old town, near the river).
