For the festival of Santa Cristina we have all seen a fantastic fireworks display, it took place on  the evening of 26th July on the the main beach of Lloret. Thousands of people start to make their way to the best view opoints around town about a hour or so before the start, we took our place at 10pm just above the Dona Marina statue....this is just a few of our best shots!

Santa Cristina / Lloret festival

Today is the saints day of Lloret & Santa Cristina, so to catch the procession of the boats leaving Lloret beach to make their way to Sant Cristina beach we had a very early start! We thought the best place to view the boats would be from the coast road between Lloret & Fenals, so we were there at 8am to make sure we got a parking place. Its quite easy to park there now since the parking meters have been installed all along that road.
Using the zoom lenses on our camers we could also get some very good shots of everyone on the beach waiting to board the boats for their trip down the coast. On arriving there they would make their way to the little church of Santa Cristina for a short service then all join in with the traditional Catalan meal on the beach....served I suspect with lots of wine!
