Pals

On Saturday we set off at 10 am for the 11 mile bike ride to Pals, a well preserved Gothic town to the east of Girona. Our route is in red. We just retraced our steps on the homeward leg.

Get close to the Piglet

The sun has returned and Colin was straight out there working on his tan. We saw this boy circling over one of the reserves by the campsite, from the early morning walk. Marsh Harrier? It looks a bit like the

The Rain in Spain

Sunday was a bit wet and we cycled in to L’Estartit with Rosie and Tony, through the floods. A lagoon had appeared , engulfing the cycle path, where a stream which normally crossed under the cycle way had become blocked

Two Cats in a Boat

We arrived here at Camping Les Medes in Cataluña, one of our favourite sites, on Wednesday and found a nice corner for Mavis next to the garden and tennis court. Thursday was still sunny, and after a quick tennis knockabout

There are Bones in these Olives

We spent the last couple of days at the Calig campsite exploring Vinaròs and Cervera. We cycled back to Vinaròs on Wednesday to pick up a Sim from the local vodaphone shop. Handily, there was a cafe just by the

The Daily Bath…more from Mrs Frank Skinner

The temperature is climbing here in Càlig so we are staying put for the time being. We started the day with a bike ride in to Càlig to pick up baguettes and some lovely jam filled pastries for a picnic

Vinaròs…the Gluttons tour continues.

As you can see from the clothing tastefully draped around Mavis, we have had a serious washing day. Nia did the washing bit, I was in charge of watching it dry in the hot Spanish sun. So pretty fair division

Cycling through the Orange Groves

On Friday we took a ride through the olive and orange groves surrounding the campsite. First stop Calig, where there is a lovely 30’s building, tiled on all sides, just on the right as you enter the village. About a
