It is amazing what makes some people happy.  This afternoon we walked from the site to the local town and enjoyed a drink at one the local bars, outside in the sunshine, (you do not need to know how warm it was).  On the way back we visited a local hardware store, Jan bought a [...]

Know we kept mentioning the wind but, enough is enough.  Got fed up with being battered by strong winds and decided that it was time to move.  Signs of stress to awning frame and the forecast of more strong wind was the final straw.  The flag pole at the main entrance to the site had [...]

Saturday, 12 -45 local time.  Been to the local market this morning to buy a weeks supply of fruit and veg.  Half the traders were packing up, the wind is so strong it is blowing the stalls over.  It is now chucking it down. Not looking for sympathy, just keeping you up to date.

A bit of a sagga this one. A tyre on Jans bike suffered a puncture, no problem we have a spare tube.  Tube did not fit, the shop who supplied the bike sold us the wrong size tube.  Strong words will be forthcoming on our return to U K. It gets better, or worse, depending [...]
