Immy sitting on a Gaudi chair

Late last night we picked up Helena's sister Tanya and her daughter Immy from Santander airport for their all too short holiday with us here in Cantabria, in northern Spain. We are returning on Friday so we are having to pack in a lot of talking as well as the holiday activities.

We started the day with coffee in town together before we went to explore a local building designed by the renowned Spanish artist Antoni Gaudí. We had a tour of the rather bewildering building and then explored it on our own. One of the recommendations was to go to the attic rooms where some of his furniture designs are set in the empty spaces under the aves, but which you are encouraged to sit on.

I was rather busy with taking photos whenever I could find a moment when people were not filling the spaces. But I was very pleased when Immy happened to sit down in one of the chairs and sat very quietly and I had a short time to compose this image.

I will have to back blip some other pictures but wanted to add this one today. I have to sit in our hotel's bar to get a strong enough wifi signal, and the the beer is quite strong too.

Looking at the resulting blipped image, I'm now rather disappointed that the colours seem quite muted, especially the various tones of the wooden floor and the chairs.
