Monday 1st February
We left the aire at La Linea on Friday morning aiming for a place called Puerto de La Duquesa.
You can see how awful this place is. Next to the sea wall, a marina in the distance, the sun is shining and it’s starting to get very warm.
There are good walks in both directions along the coast. Going south you’ll find Camping Bellavista at just €28 per night!
And going north you walk past lots of holiday homes, small apartments and lots, and lots of British people.
At the marina there were two Indian, three Chinese, a Mexican, two fish and chips and a carvery restaurant. Lots of bars, all filled mostly with British ex pats. It was a bit too British for my liking and I really couldn’t imagine living there but we stayed here for three days only having to leave because we were running low on water. There was a water tap by the parking but we didn’t spot it until we were on our way out.
Whilst sitting in one of the bars we had a call from our daughter, Emma who had just been to visit Lucy’s mum, Pat. Pat isn’t too well at the moment so we have decided to return home to be nearer to her and offer what help we can. We expect to be back home in a week or two.
There is only one place that I have always wanted to visit, it is on our way home and we have found a parking place with services and free wifi just outside of the city. We’ll get a bus in tomorrow and let you know how we get on.
