water, water, everywhere...

All over Barcelona there are public water fountains where you can fill up your drink bottle or let your dog (or Dad) have a drink.

This one is in the cloister of the cathedral in Barcelona, where 13 geese live. Santa Eulalia was 13 when she became a saint, so there is a goose for each year of her life. My Grandma Chris brought me here when I was only Leo's age.

This fountain is in Tarragona, in the old town near the cathedral. When we came by the next day somebody had written graffiti on it!

Phoebe, I remember the day so well. The cathedral was beautiful and I loved the story of the thirteen geese. Ask Mummy about the photo I have of you in your pram with a 'miraculous' light shining on you!!!!!!
