After yesterday's big day in Ronda we didn't mind spending some time in the car so Sophia could get some extra sleep. We drove around the roads connecting the small white villages where we're staying. Before we knew it, we found ourselves in Cádiz for lunch. The guidebook didn't make any vegetarian recommendations so we walked around until we found the Cerveceria Montaditos. It was packed with local teenagers so we were curious.
They sold small sandwiches with a variety of fillings. We stuck with tortilla española, our usual, but this time it came topped with salsa brava which was a nice spin. Everything on the menu sells for 1€ on Wednesdays so our entire lunch for three of us cost just 6€ which is very reasonable.
After lunch we headed to a beach just outside of town which is reputed to be windy but one of the best in Spain.
The sand was like finely sifted flour and big waves rolled over the beach which created an interesting combination of surfable waves and shallow water. Kenny and Sophia rode on an inner tube and we had fun watching the windsurfers.
We saw some beautiful sunflower fields on our drive.
And, we actually saw some goats on the goat trail (small road) leading to our hotel.
We made it back to the hotel just in time for dinner. We live on tortilla española and ice cream in Spain because there just aren't many vegetarian options. So, it's particularly nice to come back to our hotel where we can eat a delicious vegetarian meal. Tonight we started with gazpacho, moved on to falafel with roasted veggies, and finished with an apple raspberry crumble. It is so nice when we can eat well on vacation!
