16April 2nd day in Barcelona, Spain

It was crispy and fresh early morning on our second day of Barcelona.
We started walking from Columbus Square to La Rambla where street venders opening up.
On our half way through La Rambla, we got into the most famous market in Barcelona, La Boqueria.
We were busy with our cameras for what spread out in front of our eyes.
Fruit salads, assorted fruit juices are nicely displayed along with seafood shops, chocolates, nut, fresh meats include game, aged ham, exotic mushrooms and fresh flowers…

We did not want breakfast on the ship so that we could have it on the market.
There were about 4 or 5 breakfast coffee bars in the busy market.
We chose one of the busiest and we were right about our choice.
Coffee and Spanish Omelets were so good. One is with potato and the other is assorted grilled vegetables. Yum.
