Weather wasn’t playing ball, so grab it by the scruff of the neck and make it comply !
Friday, and east we went, across the A22 to the A49 on the Spanish side on to Seville and hit the ring road and around it anti clockwise and off on the eastern side staying on the dual carriageway to the town of Osuna and the aire there for the night. It’s on Campercontact, #54849... a good enough overnight spot on a large supermarket forecourt that has spaces for 10 motorhomes with full services and is free. Good supermarket too for a stock up.
Nice non touristy town for a walk around and we had a coffee in one of the Spanish bars. Weather cool and rain overnight, we had a peaceful night rest and the morning dawned overcast but a hint of sun on the horizon.
Plan was to come more east until we hit the Mediterranean coast somewhere near Malaga and within half an hour of being on the road the sun made an appearance and has been here since. We’re on a lovely little private aire, 400m from the sea, places for 30 vans and is a really nice stop..... one of the best we’ve been on, it’s on Campercontact #40027 and the website is Camping Area MH el-Rincon
, €10 per night with full services and a really nice couple running it. It’s about 15 minutes east of Malaga on the coast.
Weather has been beautiful since we arrived, it’s been 20+ and today is particularly nice and we’ve just been for a nice long walk with the dogs along the playa and back..... and SWMBO is enjoying lounging out in the sun.
I think beer o’clock may have come a bit early, so I’ll slap on a bit of factor and go toast for a few hours and keep beer to hand in case I overheat !
No plans from here, I could get used to this place for a few days.
An update on the Portugal toll system, I know we’ve a thread running on this issue but I’ll add here how we managed it. We used the website www.tollcard.pt
and found it very simple to use. Just buy the card online and associate your licence plate to it.... simple as that. The toll is debited the next morning. Very simple system that works well.
