Because I was trying to avoid saying, on social media, that we are away, I forgot to mention it on here!

We are in the Almeria region of Spain. I would love to post a photo but cannot get my hea around it. I know how to post one to Facebook, from my iPad, now though.

The journey was not enjoyable. Chris refused to do any planning of campsites, preferring to “wing it”. This meant that only one night was spent on a quiet Aire. Even then it had no water . The rest were spent on motorways or, when we did stumble on a campsite, at the mercy of gale force coastal winds

We are fine now, though. Nice little site with mountain views and lots of dry,warm weather We walk to Turre, the nearest town, each morning to pick up a paper, then spend most of the day reading it until time to walk the dog again! Surrounded by ramblas so she can go off lead. Poor girl had a bit of a phobia about barking dogs after a badly run puppy class. It is nearly cured now!

Just looked up Turre on Google maps - don't you just love that app?!? Looks a great place to be - I believe the Murcia area has a very nice microclimate.

Enjoy the relaxation!

Your not too far from Carboneras just a little south of you.
We spent many years there before it became developed and 'tidy' and even bought a piece of land. But that went all wrong.

We could just park the RV up along the beach along with a few more vans. Very laid back.

The FSA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our life´s savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. http://raynipper.com

We found this site when we were full timing and staying long term in Las Negras on a quiet little site right on the coast in the Cabo de Gata natural park. That village, like Carboneras, has changed now.
Mojacar is the most developed in the area but still has some charm.

Lots of brits here, like us, for the winter. Turre has a large ex pat community with lots of clubs and societies to get involved with if that is your thing.
