Firstly, a book I nominated as part of Amazon's Kindle Scout programme has been selected for publication so I am looking forward to reading The Three Deaths Of Magdalene Lynton by Katherine Hayton (update: book received, my review here) when it becomes available. I was attracted to the book by its synopsis and also because its title is similar to that of one of my favourite film, The Three Burials Of Melquiades Estrada.
Secondly, singer-songwriter Rachel Ries has a new EP out

Back to Tarragona!
We walked down to Tarragona port and marina on
Pausing for refreshments at the marina led to a two hour
|Beatrice Bizot sculpture|
A trio of sculptures were situated in shallow pools along the promenade. Each had been created by Italian sculptor Beatrice Bizot in 2007 and all three are pictured in the Public Works section of her website. The one pictured has a Romeo and Juliet feel to it and its accompanying plaque is in Catalan: 'La finestra, apertura per on entra el futur quotidia i surten els nostres somnis.' (Opening the window where it enters the future and leaving our everyday dreams)
We had a beautiful day for our wanders, even enabling me to wander barefoot along the sandy beach and paddle at the edge of the sea. The water was cold, but not numbingly so!
