We have done more than 2.000 miles in UK by now. Father Bunny got a new car, a nice DS3, a tiny car, but quite nice.

Today we’re in the British Riviera (yes, they’re crazy) but we have visited very nice places like Wales.

Check some pictures I took in a medieval town

Shooting day

Umeko with the Camera. She was the Camera Assistant
From Palamos to Illes Medes, very close to the coastline

After re-fueling in Sant Feliu de Guixols we headed south to Tossa de Mar

Tossa de Mar, we got closer as we could to shoot “damn tourist” on the beach

Father bunny is producing a short video that will show some of the best places in Costa Brava. Of course I am the executive producer and the original idea and all the shooting plan has be done by me.

I planned to shoot the coast from the air with an helicopter first and them from the sea. Unfortunately that will add 4.500,00 € an hour and I prefer to use my budget for other
expenses.

I sent Mem and Umeko with him and the Camera to shoot some of the most beautiful spots from the sea with a speed boat. Unfortunately for them the wind was blowing North with an intensity of 5 and some nasty waves that like to splash people when trying to go the same direction.

I placed a GPS logger in his equipment and It seems that they did their work despite the conditions. But I will need to clarify the over 100 € restaurant bill he gave me for a three person dinner in Sa Tuna.

“Mayday, Mayday, this is Miffa, Miffa, Miffa,
our position is 41°57’40.07″N 3°14’20.73″E
we lost our sailor Miffo, we start a BOB manouver
to recover her from the sea…” DRAMATIZATION
A Mayday situation is one in which a vessel, aircraft, vehicle, or person/bunny is in grave and imminent danger and requires immediate assistance. (Wikipedia dixit)

Of course Miffo wasn’t in danger at all, but she insisted in checking our Emergency Procedure (EP) and FB’s ability to make front to such dangers.

FB and Miffo emerge from water and they’re ready to be lifted by the rescue helicopter

Figueres, Cadaques, Port Lligat and Cap de Creus

Together with our friends from Cafemiffy we visited these famous and beautiful places in Costa Brava. It was a hard journey that started early in the morning.

Our first stop was Figueres were the Dali museum is located. It was the first time for both of us, so we decided to hire a professional guide for the visit.

It was well worth of it because Dali’s art complexity and all the weird things that you would miss is you’re not a real fan or just it’s your first visit.

From there we moved to Cadaques were we visited their center and we had Paella. A very nice dinner but may be too much Paella for us. The road from L’Escala to Cadaques is very curvy and you will need at least 30 minutes to arrive there. During summer time the traffic there is heavy and there’s no so much parking space (expect to park quite far, if you can park).

Next destination, Dali’s house in Port Lligat. I was there once sailing and I must admit that Dali knew about nice spots. He built a –surrealist house- joining several small fisherman houses. We were lucky because it’s closed on January. It was the last day…

Weather wasn’t fine and a big storm with heavy rain and wind surprised us. Well, this is another “nice” attraction of this area close to Cap de Creus.

If you want to see some pictures you can go here, but I really recommend visiting it.


This is what you just see when entering inside

Almost no day light, bad weather…

– should we return home, I asked my father.
– Surely not Miffa this is perfect for visiting Cap de Creus’ lighthouse.

He was right but it wasn’t nice outside. Now I know why sailors are afraid to cross this Cape with heavy “Tramuntana” wind.
