Marjal Costa Blanca

Elvis, Robot waiters, Flamingos…It’s all here… The Alannia resort at Crevillent is not to everyone’s taste; it’s very big, maybe 500-1000 pitches, and well provided with stuff to do; heated swimming pool, sauna, pétanque, Padel (like tennnis but slightly smaller

El Palomar

We stopped overnight at the inland Spanish village of El Palomar, en route to the sun. The village is surrounded by orange and olive groves.

Time to Move On

After a couple of weeks at Camping Marjal it is time for a change of scenery and we are heading for Cartagena. We enjoyed our time here, with some good walks around the local nature reserve. A few days after

Elvis is Alive

Thursday in southern France was still a bit chilly and we decamped early for the cross-Spain leg. Its easy driving on the largely empty roads which only get busy round the big cities. We crossed Spain in a blur of

Don’t Trust a Woman with Eyeballs in her Bag.

There was a Petanque competition last week, open to all, which we had a go at. You can just see the orange cochonet or piglet that Nia is aiming for in the foreground. We failed to figure in the prize

Hot Dates

The rain in Spain does get down to the Med sometimes…I was up at 6am yesterday morning to furl the awning. We had an early thunderstorm and I didn’t want Mavis to blow away. The sun came out after a

Petanque with the Pros

With bad weather breathing down our necks we left Capbreton early on Friday morning and headed south through Spain. After 385 miles we paused for the night outside Camping Valencia. You could park inside the site for 16 euros or

Anyone for Tennis?

Having visited the cut price sports shop at Benicarlo (two rackets, two balls…€17) we decided to christen the rackets on the astroturfed tennis court here at Ribamar. Luckily the guys who set up the courts for us …I think we

On the Beach again…..Ribamar

We have moved about 30 miles south to Camping Ribamar (N 40.270208, E 0.307067), a spacious and quiet site close to Alcossebre. The site is about a mile from Fuentes, which is an easterly prolongation of the town of Alcossebre.
