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

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

Walking on Water

We have put down roots for a few weeks at Camping Marjal near Alicante. It is a good cycling spot with lots to explore. This is generally a pretty healthy lifestyle. Except when you fall off your bike, which I

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

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.

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

Camping L’Orangeraie

I took Penny and Colin out first thing to see the sunrise….not sure they were that impressed and to be fair, without any clouds, it wasn’t a great display. Later that morning we had a lovely surprise, a blog first,
