We asked for it… a couple of days ago we were discussing how beautiful the weather was for December… and what happened… it's suddenly gotten decidedly cooler! But never mind. There is still plenty to do and the Winter sunshine here is a summer's day for most of us.
The late evenings are perfect for a walk along the beach, taking in the crisp air and marvelling in the beautiful views of the town, the sea and the mountains of the Penendes region.
The sunsets are still amazing in Sitges. The afternoons are long and warm… perfect for sipping a glass of wine and watching the gay boys walk by.
Walk down La Ribera and pop into a Churingito for a snack before taking off again to do some shopping, sight-seeing or just bask in the Winter sunshine.
There are so many restaurants along this long boulevard. Be sure to check all the menu's as there are some real hidden gems up towards the end of the Calipolis Hotel. Or alternatively, head over past the church for an even wider choice of food and take in the view the spectaular evening sky when the mountains grow closer as the sun goes down.
Earlier on some boys braved the cold water and went for surfing. We even saw some people swimming in the sea later on in the evening. What they were on we don't know!
The surfers were out in force yesterday and the waves were perfect for some spectacular moves.
Jorge, the surfer in the photo below, was by far the best on Saturday morning. He surfs most weekends early in the day so be sure to check him out!
Sitges is taking on a more seasonal air this weekend with the unveiling of the Christmas Tree in Cap de la Villa, (the town square).
Different in every way, the tree is very “Sitges”, in that it is more a piece of art than a Christmas Tree. But that is what Sitges is all about… that little bit of difference is accepted as normal.
Where else could you leave a Christmas Tree with glass, real candles and lights in the centre of a town, safe in the knowledge that the only thing anyone is going to do is admire it!
