MonellsPosted: July 16, 2013
I spent some of the day exploring the rolling green hills of the Empordà and the small stone villages surrounding Girona, in particular the medieval ones. My favorite was Monells which was almost deserted in the early morning. I sketched from a café looking out on this porticoed plaza which included a few stray dogs, two white cats and a well of fresh water. I know this because when I tried to go inside the cafe to wash my brushes the owner shook her finger at me and politely directed me to that well.
