Even though there was some intermittent rain, we were outside almost all day. We started off at Montserrat, first taking a steep vernacular up to the peak, then walking down to the monastery. We heard a few numbers by the famous boys’ choir (from the courtyard, unfortunately; they’re not letting too many people inside the chapel due to Covid). After lunch Ray shared some legends about the unusual rock formations of the mountain and some details about the history of the monastery. Then Jaden told the story of the monastery’s crown jewel, the Black Madonna, which some of us chose to visit during our free time. We spent the afternoon at the beach, playing spike ball, digging in the sand, walking along the shore, and wading. Some intrepid students even braved the cold water of the Mediterranean Sea for an actual swim. After dinner near La Rambla we had family group meetings to prepare for tomorrow, our final full day in Spain.
