Last Sunday evening, Anna G and I decided to take Kiara to Montjuic park for a sunset picnic. Just a few minutes walk from Placa Espanya, this is a gorgeous park that is mostly known to tourists for its magic fountain, which I'll get to at the end of this post. When Sean and I went to Montjuic in early June during the day, it was nearly empty. Anna and I were also surprised at how few people there were around 8pm on a Sunday.
Here's a tip: Don't be lazy, and take the stairs as far up as you can go. It's like a mini-city up there. We stopped at the fields outside the Olympic Park, where Kiara actually PLAYED BALL. She hasn't done that all year and I thought it was because my little baby is almost six and just didn't want to run around like crazy after her CCL - Canine Cruciate Ligament - leg surgery in England last year. It turns out she just needed REAL fields, not the small parks that are surrounded by roads and beaches and cars and too many people. She was chasing and fetching and returning the ball like a little puppy :) I love my pup so much...I am SO lucky to have her, and the best part of summer is having more time to spend with her. By the way, this is how K drinks water: straight from the 1.5 litre water bottle...it was empty fast!!!
We had a fairly healthy picnic - Anna made potatoes with herbs, and I made a chickpea spinach tofu salad; we had a bunch of fruit for dessert, which Kiara eagerly waited for! Oh, and wine, of course. We are in Europe - wine is a given!!!
