A few photographs of our travels. The latest photographs at the top.
Then a dash North and a few days at the Bastide
A close shave with a bolt, sorted in 30 minutes
Beaches and Western towns
Cadiz and jerez, where they have sherry on tap
Gibraltar for Christmas with a great lunch, the view from the Commodore`s terrace, and his cannon
A few beach stops on the way to Gibraltar, with a view of the ‘rock’ and Africa beyond
The Desert and the Sierra Nevada
Then through the Plastic to the desert. Much of the coast os covered in plastic greenhouses (If you ever wondered where winter tomatoes came from).
We rode out a storm in the Cabo Gata national Park, in the small resort of Agua Amarga
Macenas Playa, Mojacar
A few miles down the road from the hill-top town of Mojajcar. A beach, a chiringuito (beach bar) and a place to park for a couple of nights.
Campervans middle left by tower.
A ‘real’, and very nice, Spanish town on the coast. Three nights in the Marina carp park, a beach either side, and our lunch hanging to dry.
We parked up by the beach, under the rock formation with ‘just a couple’ of other campervans. There was a chance for a very brief swim and we watched the sunset from the beach bar opposite.
La Manga, Cartagena
At the end of a very long, very over-developed spit of Land, between Lagoon and sea, a car park with 10 other campervans. No photo of the homeless man in his car sleeping next to us. Still, we got a free aerobatics display from the Spanish red arrows, and a first chance to sunbathe.
Sax, Murcia – A night in the back country
We thought it would be a bit wilder and more deserty, but it turned out to be a bit suburban.
Finally a sunny day, and a beautiful lunch spot
Platja de Xeraco, A very dead seaside resort
La Veilla Baixa, Catalonia
The evening before the storm
A cold night in the hills above Barcelona
Torroela de Montgri, Catalonia
Our first night in Spain, a wonderful wild beach
Leucat plage, Narbonne
Another rainy day
A French Passion with wine and toys.
English Channel, A seasick dog (I’ve never seen bow waves crashing over the top of a ferry before).
