Cap de Creus

The Pyrenees drop into the Mediterranean Sea right at the border between France and Spain, making for a dramatic coastline with rocky headlands, twisty roads, and small towns.  We were happy to be out of the rain, even if the sun hadn’t quite come out.  We were aiming at Cadaques, Spain, where we had visited a few years ago.  Cadaques is the main town on the Cap de Creus peninsula, which is Spain’s easternmost point.  And within a few hours, the sun had started to appear.

Not much use for the border post now.
