We have moved about 30 miles south to Camping Ribamar (N 40.270208, E 0.307067), a spacious and quiet site close to Alcossebre.

Lighthouse near Fuentes

The site is about a mile from Fuentes, which is an easterly prolongation of the town of Alcossebre. It is a rocky but pleasant shore and there are long walks along the shore in both directions.

Peniscola is about 10 miles to the east. When we walked west along the shore on the day we arrived, we reached the lighthouse after about a mile and then there is a good walkway to Fuentes and Alcossebre.

Hills behind Ribamar

Pine forests sweep down to the coast from the higher ground to the north and this is a relative disadvantage to the site; the pines are home to Pine Processionary caterpillars, so called because they march around in a head to tail procession. They have toxic spines which they can fire off like harpoons when irritated, and are very dangerous to dogs. So Penny and Colin have been kept on the lead and not allowed to run through the woods. The caterpillars are a problem from January to April.

Yesterday was my birthday and we cycled in to town for the traditional lunchtime blow out.

Birthday Lunch

We ate at the Restaurant Baverie by the harbour, as recommended by a couple who we had met on a walk the day before. It was a good 4 course menu del dia served up by the charming Spanish owner, who greeted us like long lost friends. There were quite a few Spanish here. Its good to find a place which is popular with the locals.

I won’t bore you with the full details but this was the epic pudding…apple strudel with caramelized crepes..very yummy.

We cycled back along the harbour. In coats! I’m afraid its getting a little nippy here with temperatures plummeting to 15 degrees!

These waterside properties come with parking for your yacht/cruiser/fishing craft whatever.

We have discovered tennis courts here so that is the plan for this morning, then maybe an exploration of Alcossebre in the afternoon.

    A belated happy birthday, Peter. The Spanish food looks delicious. You will be fit with all the cycling. I think that Lycra may improve your velocity. Hope that Colin& Penny avoid those nasty caterpillars.
    Arthur called tonight,pleased that Kate& Chris have arrived . We sent Bob a limerick for his 99th birthday, and he was suited,bless him.

    Do enjoy the rest of your travels.
    Cheers, Liz & Joe xx
