This is the Costa Brava coastline which according to our trip notes means 'brave' in the sense of courage and wilderness.
So don't be fooled but the beautiful blue skies and seas that do not really look that rough. We had just come down from the mountains struggling (at least) 80kph winds that nearly blew us and our precious trip notes off the ridges.
And this was on the easy route. There was no way we could have walked the higher and more "sporty" track.
