ST GEORGE’S DAY
We are here
After a very trying day on the road what with having to pay tolls ( makes my Yorkshireman break out in a cold sweat) and trying to find free parking spots ..all disappeared ..but lots of town driving which means speed bumps ,roundabouts and pedestrian with priority and stepping out on to the many zebra crossings in front of us ..our nerves are shattered .. Well mine are .. I do think J is a very patient driver under the circumstances and that’s aimed at me .. I squeal and jump .. A very nervous passenger …
We are on our way to Barcelona as The Sagrada Familia is our next must see.. This is the church designed by Anton Gaudi http://architecture.about.com/od/architectsaz/p/gaudi.htm
We have found a parking spot (if it still exists ) off the blog I follow http://www.ourtour.com all about two people from Nottingham and their dog Charlie and motorhome Dave (same make and style as Hetty but a few years older)who did their gap year but it was two years duration and they are not just post grad .. Late thirties perhaps ..The info on their site has come In very useful .. Or as I say if in doubt “let’s have a look at ourtour”
So here we are in Xerico at an expensive camping spot called Camping San Vincente ..on the beach with a so called resturant but as no one seems to be eating there we will give it a miss .. The beach is glorious .. No one here .. Just a very few Spanish people … Just perfect ..
Sadly we will move on tomorrow. But I could stay here for a week it’s so relaxing … Continental cuisine al a Hettys galley for us …
Very late lunch after a few hours on the beach .. Again baguette .. Some odd Slimey looking pate but very tasty .. Philli cheese salami and garlic tomatoes with white wine at 75c per box … Chilled it’s quite acceptable ..
Another of our gastronomic creations is old baguette (waste not want not) turned into lunch time pizza ..
