Exercise Time

Morning Siesta

Morning Siesta

The boss has designated today as a cleaning day, in preparation for the trip home, so I shall have to take the torpid terriers for some exercise. There are plenty of cats to chase here, ‘tho, truth be told, Colin and Penny aren’t so bothered with running after the furry felines any more so it’ll be all down to me. And the cats are quite safe… I struggle to skip up the palm trees after them these days. Too many tapas over the years.

In order to appear busy and avoid being drafted into cleaning duties, I will blog a few pictures of the campsite.

Camping Les Medes

The site is lovely…friendly and efficient. We pitched up, no booking ahead as ever, and it was just…’find somewhere you like, let us know when you are settled…’

This is Joseph, the owners son, ever helpful.

Lucretia

This is Lucretia who works in the campsite shop. Always cheerful, part time (unpaid) spanish coach, fresh orange squeezer, font of local knowledge…

The Outdoor Pool

The Outdoor Pool

Looks inviting, but empty at the moment. The clue is in the next picture.

Pool Temperature

There is a good heated indoor pool, open in the day and the evening.

Marta Mas

There are free spanish lessons twice a week, taken by the delightful Marta. Today she was teaching four of us, from Belgium, Holland, Germany and the UK. So there is a wide breadth of pronunciations. It is very light hearted.

Nature Reserve
