For 11 Euro each, hop the train 2 hours east to Empuriobravo. This big Merc pusher for the final stretch.



Empuriobrava is the largest "marina" in the world, built some 40 years ago by the Dutch and Germans on what was formerly swamp land. It's a subdivision with sea access. If you had bought here 40 years ago, you'd be doing pretty well. Apparently, holidayers drive here from all over Europe, and "wrinklers" are bussed in daily.



We rent a moto of a different flavor and tour the canals.



For dinner, we have one of the best Thai meals we've ever tasted. And we've been to Thailand twice.



This is a shout out to my friend David who works for Mercury Marine. Sorry, David, but the best outboard ever seems to have been built long ago. You guys should just drop that 2 stroke, diesel, direct injection business
