As we were packing up our neighbours that had arrived after us started to talk to me. It seems that they were at the last site when we left there. How strange people leave it to the last minute to start talking.
We drove around the narrow roads on the site with some trepidation but I shouldn’t have been worried. I was worried about something that was said to me and I read in the ‘Winter Sun’ brochure. It seems that any unit, which includes the vehicle and caravan, over 12m in length should be displaying the yellow with red edging reflector plates. Not doing so in Spain can be an instant €1000 fine. I am worried even though we only have 160 miles to travel before we are in France and they are a little more tolerant.
I decided that I wanted to fill with fuel in the large truck town called La Jonquera as it is cheaper in Spain than France. As it turns out it was but not as cheap as Benidorm. I pulled off the Toll motorway and followed the road past the spot where we saw “The Lady of the Night” some weeks ago on our way down. However, she was not in her normal spot but there was one young lady plying for trade a little before this spot. I can only tell you it would be easier to tell you what she didn’t have on….if you get my drift! I am hoping I can pull a photo from the dash cam.
After filling with fuel we proceeded into France and you can immediately tell the difference. It wasn’t long before we arrived at our overnight stop. The pitch was at the very far end but it had a newly refurbished personal bathroom / shower room with hot / cold running water.
We decided to leave the van so we had minimal work to do in the morning as we need to visit the vet for the tape worming treatment the dogs must have before re-entering into the UK.
More episodes of ‘Dirty John’ before retiring to bed.
