Taking It Easy

Missing Post – must have deleted it by mistake. Anyway we went to Javea but did not like the campsite, so drove south past Benidorm, Alicante and arrived at Elche where we found a commercial campsite. Beach was ten minutes walk away along a boardwalk.

We seemed to be getting a bit too comfortable at La Marina site, deciding for reasons of indolence to remain where we were until after the weekend, total of four nights. Our chairs and table soon came out and the washing line was strung between two trees. Any time soon there wold be a tub of petunias along our pitch perimeter.

Tony disgraced himself one morning by mistaking the Ladies’ shower block for the Men’s. There were signs at the entrance but these just showed a blue porpoise cartoon character – only if you carefully compared each sign could you see that one creature had a little pink skirt on and the other a shirt and bow tie. New rule for the future – watch the doors to see who enters which door! Hopefully nobody noticed or he could have been arrested!

Everyone is very friendly and each morning the Germans greet us with a cheerful “Morgan” as they pass by – how do they know our name? Should I shout back Schmidt?

They even have a special dog washing block with steps and ramp leading up to the dog bath. Kay would have DSC03346a field day here, everyone has a dog or two. Where are Muffy and the chihuahuas when you need them!
