After breakfast we drove around to Lidl and did some essentials shopping. Its surprising what you think you need and then what you actually walk out of the shop with. As usual Tina was drawn to the “bargains”. She picked up a pink top that she assured me was good value at €10… I wasn’t convinced.
Next stop was Mercadonna, the supermarket chain, where we bought the bottles of Caramel vodka at the start of the trip. Unfortunately it seems popular around here as they only had 2 bottles. Have to gone some elsewhere in Spain we thought. We also drove around to Media Markt where I wanted to get a replacement cable for the laptop. After having excellent service in Morocco where everyone wants to help this was a culture shock. The sales assistants just didn’t want to know. Eventually I found out they didn’t have one anyway. It can wait until we get home.
We are now on the road making our way to our overnight stop. Ah … another Mercadonna. We stop and buy the 14 bottles that remain on their shelves. They must think that this is popular in these parts.
We make good time and arrive at Golf Noria where we have been many times before. The “boys” love it here as there is freedom to roam and run. We relax in the afternoon which is warm if a little overcast.
We decide that we would eat out tonight at the Chinese buffet we have frequented before crossing to Morocco. The food was good and it was quite noticeable how many of the people in the restaurant were english. It must be because there are many hotels here that cater for short holidays for the english.
After returning and watching a film we decide that we would crack on with our journey and maybe rearrange both the vet visit and our Eurotunnel crossing….. we will have to see. No matter we are going to leave tomorrow.
