Avinguda d’Albert Bastardas

Yesterday’s adventure took me to some of my old haunts. I went looking to take pictures of things I had seen in my commute but had never taken the time to come back to when I could actually stop for the photos.

 

Last year, on my drive home from practice, I often took a road running behind the Real Polo Club de Barcelona. It was appealing for both it’s lack of stoplights and for its interesting scenery:

 

Aigües de Barcelona is the company in charge of water distribution in Barcelona and other nearby municipalities. In the background you can see the Hotel Rey Juan Carlos, where the visiting footballers stay.

This road continues and runs below the Carretera de Collblanc, where you can pass through a tunnel made of stone but now mostly covered in modern metal and concrete.

On the way down to the bridge, after the Aigües, is a volleyball court, here used to play a football-volleyball hybrid.

And from below, you can see some of the new construction along the Carretera de Collblanc:
