And Another Dose Of Dali - The Cadaques Bit.

We hire a car for the day and head to the coast from Figueres, about a half hour away.
The small coastal village of Cadaques is nestled in a tiny harbour on the Mediterranean, and is where Dali would holiday as a youth, but in later life bought a house on the waters edge in Port Lligat, a stone throw away. This home is also a work of art and now a museum.
Cadaques is white and perfect. If you know a little about Dali's art, then as you walk around, every view and turn is a slice from one of his works. The rugged rock upheaval of the nearby  coastline, is where he forged ideas for his dreamlike coastal images.

In the cafe on the beach, we ate deep fried tiger prawns in crispy potato. Almost wept!

Further around the coast is Cap De Creus, the most eastern part of the Spanish mainland. 
Vertical rock striations rise from the sea in a ruggedly beautiful coastline, and sheltering in  deep inlets are little harbours and sandy bays. 

In the distance France. 

The spaghetti western cafe at the end of the world.
