Oh I do like to be beside the seaside.

Friday morning we woke to bright sunshine and clear skies. We were going to head into Barcelona this morning but after a few days driving we decided to enjoy the campsite and it’s surroundings.

We enjoyed long leisurely breakfast, sat outside of Miss Lexy listening to the waves crashing and watching the world go by.

The only trouble with living in a small Motorhome is that you still have to do housework, especially when parked next to the beach, so we set about cleaning up and tidying round this morning. Whilst doing this we thought we should have an ice lolly just to cool us down but the shop was shut. We knew the Spanish had a siesta but the shop was shut from 11.30 until 17.30! Oh well best hit the bar again where we enjoyed a delicious light lunch and cool drinks. We are on honeymoon after all 😉

Back to the van and Rich needed a little siesta so I changed and headed of to the beach where I enjoyed a Relaxed stroll on the edge of the sea. As I acclimatised to the temperature of the water I had to give in and go for not just a paddle but a full dip. Bev, you would have been proud. It was like being in the sea in Cyprus. Lovely and warm and crystal clear. Lots of tiny delicate seas shells on the shore line to admire to.

Time to head back to the van, go to the now open shop and head back for a dinner of local melon and Parma type ham and good old chicken and chips. We found some little creme caramel deserts in the little shop to, not bad at all.

The campsite is full of lovely flowers. I’ve no idea what some of them are but here are some pictures for you to enjoy.

After dinner we had planning to do. We wanted to go to Barcelona the next day but the bus ride wasn’t suitable for us as it was just over an hour each way and 25 stops. Rich managed to find a secure car park for Miss Lexy and we plan to visit the food market from there.

Watch out for the next blog with our adventures at the food market.
