Santa Pau and Banyoles

We had taken the highway up to Olot because we were starving and wanted to hit the restaurant as soon as it opened.  On the way back to Figueres we opted for a more scenic route on a smaller road, which took us through the old volcano region to the small town of Santa Pau. 


I'm always thrilled to see the local animal life wherever I go.

The final place we visited was Banyoles, which had a beautiful lake right on the edge of the town.
 








It was still pretty light out in Banyoles, even at 10:15 at night.
