Last Thursday was the last day with the moto we had rented, so when I finished babysitting, we went on a small trip to Montjuïc. Montjuïc is a 173m high mountain/hill in Barcelona with small gardens, the olympic area and an old fort, Castell de Montjuïc, overlooking Barcelona on the north side, the harbour and the ocean on the east side and the industrial area and L'Hospitalet de Llobregat on the south and west. On the north foot of the mountain are the MNAC (Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya) and the magic fountain (which I have pictures of here).

I have been on Montjuïc before, but never seen the castell, so with Charlie the dog between us, we drove up the hill. It was beautiful weather and we found a nice little walking-trail around the fort, so everyone was enjoying the trip. We had brought some lunch that we had, overlooking the ocean. We ended the trip with ice-cream in the shade, before going home again.
