It’s Hot

After a second very good nights sleep at the La Pagan marina car park we decided to take a break from wild camping and do the dirty clothes washing.

Out with the iPad and look for a spot in search for sites (a very useful resource only £5.95 for a years subscription). We decided on La Ribera only a short drive away and all the facilities for €11 euros including electricity. So bedding changed and drive along the seafront then turn inland to the camping park. It’s very new clean and well set out being pretty big about 240 places with some big enough for the tour bus brigade.We opted for electricity for an extra to allow some charging of bits and pieces plus giving The Cook the option of running her hair dryer.

On arrival we had breakfast in the site restaurant to get some change for the washing then ran 2 loads at €3 a time . The site maintenance guy had just completed a new drying rack so we did not have to rig up Hetty like a Chinese laundry or use the tumble dryer (another €3). Everything is drying extremely quickly and we are catching the breeze and a few rays on our pitch which is next to a communal picnic and sitting area which separates pitches nicely.

We are sitting by the local flying school which is in full swing with planes circling our site with engines roaring away reminiscent of World War 2 fighter planes trying to shoot each other down.

We now have to decide what to have for our evening meal and try to keep Hetty and The Cook cool this evening.

It’s a hard life
