WOW ! GRANADA

VELEZ-RUBIO

GPS 37.65229 -2.073393

We stayed over on the way to GRANADA in an aire found at Velez-Rubio..yet again searchforsites.. Basic with services… 5 level pitches …No leccy …Free of Charge BUT WHO let the dogs out Barking all night ..Nothing to recommend about the town just convenient as a way stop between want to visit towns of interest to Hetty’s Crew.. The Cook didn’t sleep a wink.. Sighs

Early morning off to Granada to a parking spot found a good looking level carpark on searchforsites by THE ABBEY DE SACAMONTE

Abbey Courtyard

high above Granada with a near perfect view of the world famous ALHAMBRA PALACE

THE Driver decided we would take a walk ..Down to the village of ALBAYZIN ..Bottom of the very steep hill The Cooks legs decided after the LORCA walk this was not a great idea ..calf muscle hadn’t got their elasticity back ..There’s a bus stop said The Driver and its going our way ….Smiles … What a way to see Granada as it was the circular bus which took us all round the city ..past ALHAMBRA

No tickets to go visit but just to view it was fine and back up to Albazin and it’s alleys and courtyards ..just gorgeous .

On our return to Hetty found stuck to her door a note from the authorities.. Perhaps the Monks thought us a Tinker camp scout for the rest of the tribe to follow ..We have warned searchforsites of the” THOU SHALT NOT”over night here ..

Off we toddled being seriously chastised by some official to find a sleepy spot else where ..Not a good idea as it was going towards dusk ..We like to find a place pre dark but this time nothing until we came across a Commercial site ..New builds and stopped there

Me and Him and Hetty like adventures ..We spend most of our summers sailing Now a little elderly for big boat racing and have turned to Radio Controlled Yachting competing nationally and even internationally ..I have travelled to many countries in my other life BJ (before John)lots of Indian backpacking trips. Panning gold in the Yukon..Pacific island hopping ..Far east and so on ..John won't go to India but I managed to get him to Morocco and Sri Lanka but didn't expect a Tsunami.
