After our impromptu stop at the beach, we threaded our way back over the mountains to return to to the site and were greeted with some fantastic views of the bay we just swam in. This way also allowed a swift drive past Monasterio de Sant Pere de Rodes, though we didn’t stop to visit as this might have been a bridge too far for Finn.
Our next day out was to the Mas Guso vineyard, only a few miles from our campsite. Once again, this day trip was greeted with the same enthusiasm as the day trip to Roses. Despite me trying to sell it as a cultural experience, Finley was adamant that we were being selfish taking children to a vineyard!
On arrival, we entered the shop where the children (Finley included!) enjoyed sampling a range of apple juices made form apples, grown in the vineyard’s orchard. Later we explored the grounds, including the extensive herb garden, during which, Isla managed to fall into one of the herb beds ending up with a foot covered in mud! As luck would have it, there was a fountain nearby, so we were able to swill her foot in it to remove the mud. Finally, it was time to sample some wine! Unsurprisingly, we came away with a couple of cases and some lovely fresh produce for lunch.
