After lunch at Joanet, we walked towards Barceloneta Beach with a brief interlude for coffee on the way. On arrival we were delighted to find that one of the xiringuitos (small bar or restaurant on the beach), Blue Beach Bar was still open for October – generally they close at the end of the season.

We ordered rosado and watched the Mediterranean while the sun started to set. In the distance, fish shoals on the surface of the sea caused a feeding frenzy amongst diving seagulls. At the table next to us an itinerant masseur got into a big fight with the xiringuito manager for offering her services to customers. A group of 20 or so tourists (all dressed alike) ran down onto the beach with a music player and camera – they jumped around and danced for for 2 minutes while someone filmed, then scampered off back to their coach. A large professional film crew carried sound and lighting equipment down to the sea shore for a night time shoot. This was aside from the volleyball players, swimmers, children, and romantic couples…

An hour later and it was nearly dark – Blue Beach Bar started to close. We wandered back into Barcelona and I started to think about supper.

Blue Beach Bar is at: Playa De Sant Miquel, Barceloneta, 08003 Barcelona.
