Flight: Spain: Castellon de la Plana, Delta de l’Ebre

This is a real image. Story further down.

These are the images missing in my April blog post. I intended to fly to Morocco and the whole thing went to pot. As is customary, these are the images not on the AOPA post.

Estos son los imágenes que faltan en mi AOPA post de abril. Intenté volar a Marruecos y el plan entero se falló. Cómo normal, estos son los imágenes que no están en AOPA.

One way to deal with the inversion…..fly above it!

A bit hazy, but not too bad. Staying high up as terrain inclines in a few miles.

I have a better idea of how this road could have been laid out.

The weather went hazy, my new camera battery is empty and despite the fact that its the same size as my other camera’s batteries they are not compatible, and the headwind is absurdly strong. I am very pissy at this point.

Back to the old camera….

Evidence of the silly wind.

Diverting to Castellon de la Plana instead of Teruel as planned. Yup, this is going well.

By the coast. Haze is gone. Note Delta de l’Ebre on the horizon.

Penis. If this becomes all I am ever recognized for, I am fine with that.

Penis Cola? I prefer Pepsi…

Peñíscola. Note the Tilda and accent. That is the *proper* spelling, though someone decided to build a whole structure with it misspelled. Actual penis label lower center left.

After seeing the penis sign, I am unsure what this is supposed to mean.

The next morning….now on the way back. If someone tells you that they have a “villa in Spain” at a cocktail party, it probably looks like this. Don’t be impressed.

Panta de las Baells. There is supposed to be a left accent on the ending a in Panta. The cat sprayed on my keyboard, and Microsoft only sells this model in Spain with Spanish keys and I can’t find the damn left pointing accent mark! It must be a conspiracy by the Spaniards against Catalunya (left accents are only in Catalan).

El Pedraforca – symbol of Catalunya. Since this is largely a penis-themed blog post, I haven’t decided if Pedraforca is the grand middle finger or grand erection of Catalunya…..
