Having had a week of really bad thunder storms, rain, and generally grey days, we thought winter was upon us, but now we have moved away from the mountains, everything is back to normal!
We had a day without doing much, time to get Geoff’s back better, and for me to top up the tan, went for a lovely swim in the pool, and the dogs enjoyed swimming in the river, what a difference when the sun shines again. Moving tomorrow, so have not fully unpacked, but
thoroughly enjoyed a day in the sunshine. We left early after Geoff upsetting the natives, first he made someone’s stuff wet, and mind you they did put it by the water tap, when he was filling the water tank! Then when we went to leave, we were trying to pay, and the lady wanted us to park no mean feat when you have 11 metres to fit into the normal parking places, so Geoff went out the gate, an Italian coming the way, just blocked the road, we could not reverse, and he would not, so he struggled to get around us. All good fun!
Geoff wanted to go on the coastal road, which we did, but the only problem was it went up the side of a mountain, it was S bends, very narrow in parts, and sheer drops, and very scary, I was not a happy teddy, we had to spend some of the time in first gear, as it was so steep, so certainly not a relaxing drive. (Geoff enjoyed it though!)
We eventually found our campsite, and the welcome we had was lovely, so friendly, and so helpful, quite a shock, and such a lovely space, we get ourselves sorted, and I manage to get TV for the first
time in ages, so we watched the highlights of the Qualifying of the Grand Prix and the ‘Last Night of the Proms’ Brilliant! Today we spent washing, and cleaning up, sunbathing, swimming, and catching up with the website, a lovely lazy day. The swimming pool here is lovely and deep, very big, and also empty of people, maybe because it is cold, but it is a pleasure to be away in September
