Isn’t she pretty?
We left our comfortable campsite this morning and headed off along the coast towards Spain, looking for this cheap campsite, we’d seen on the internet, at Tavira – we drove into the town and around the town but couldn’t find it. We continued along the N125 until we saw a sign ‘Campismo’ and we came to this campsite – I don’t know how we actually ended up here; we asked the price, it was expensive but before we knew it we were being given entrance cards for the van and pedestrians (it’s a bit like ‘Colditz’ here, there’s a barrier for the van and turnstiles for us!) and handing over our passports. Everything is extra – so no hook up tonight and no internet access!!! We’re both a little bit annoyed with ourselves and it’s only over 12€! However ............................
We went for a bike ride, it’s brilliant now Brett’s bike is mended, and found the beach front – masses of bars and restaurants, but also very pretty.
Then as we cycled out along the coastal path we came across this Moorish castle it was beautiful; quite run down yet full of charm – I would love to paint it (I didn’t have my stuff with me, perhaps we’ll go back tomorrow). Unfortunately it was obviously privately owned and wasn’t open to the public – you could see a more modern dwelling within the walls. It looks like it could have had a moat at some time.
