Yesterday's challenging drive left me feeling quite tired this morning. After the ten o'clock service at Vinaròs, I stopped for a cup of coffee, something I don't normally do, but on this occasion I felt the need of a stimulant. I'm not quite sure how it happened, but I came to the conclusion it was ten to twelve when it was in fact only ten to eleven. So, I set off in a rush, thinking I'd not left myself sufficient time for the 45 minute drive to L'Ampolla. The last ten minutes of the journey I spent rehearsing apologies for being late. When I arrived, I couldn't make out why the church was full of people singing to guitars. It took me a few moments to realise that the regular Catalan Catholic Mass preceding ours was in its closing stages. I was 55 minutes early, and needn't have driven so anxiously. Thankfully there was enough traffic en route going at the legal limit and hard to overtake, to prevent me from speeding. There's plenty of time for this journey. I don't know how I came to forget that.
After another leisurely picnic lunch at the camping Sant Jordi, I drove home via the Delta, making my way down the south bank of the Ebre river to Sant Jaume d'Enveja, to see the new bridge which links the town with Deltebre on the north bank.
