Thrill seekers on the Costa Brava !!!

One of the most enjoyable days we had in Roses was the day we got on a two carriage train called “Roses Excursions” which took 40 of us up the mountains to visit the towns of Roses and Cadaquis. It was a marvellous excursion. We enjoyed the wonderful views with fascinating background landscapes such as the Bay of Roses and the natural Reserve Park of Cap de Creus
We were like a group of boarders from school on a day out, complete with sun hats, suntan lotion and the odd bottle of water. We spent four hours looking down at the beaches emerging from the clear blue waters of the Mediterranean and learning about the cultural and ancient history of the local towns.
It was even scarier than the Ring of Kerry! As we looked down thousands of feet with nothing between us and deep blue sea there were several prayers silently and loudly said especially from Chris who sat in the back seat with her back to the great “fall”.Dougie and Liam captured the scary sight on video.
Anyway, we all got back safely to “Terra Firma” still holding our breaths and delighted with our day out.
