Journal Entry:
Got up even more tired than yesterday. After the alarm went off I laid in bed and thought of every excuse for not getting up, then got up. I was even more sore than I thought I was going to be. The rowing wasn't as good as yesterday. I was in a double with a novice rower, and between the two of us we had very few good strokes. It was still great to be on the water though. And it was a perfect, clear, sunny morning.

After rowing I decided that if the weather was going to be nice I'd put off going to Madrid and spend more time here in Barcelona (the fact that I can row here also contributed). So I committed to rowing tomorrow morning as well.

I spent the rest of a beautiful sunny afternoon in Güell Park. This is a wonderful park up on a hill overlooking Barcelona. It was designed by Gaudi and is full of whimsical mosaics and organic-like structures. Definitely a must see.
