    We had a good crossing from Portsmouth to Bilbao, arriving there early morning. Then we had an easy drive down to Sobradiel for our overnight stop. Sobradiel was very cold and windy, we awoke early and headed off to Benidorm at 5am this morning. At 11am we arrived at Benidorm, what a difference, clear blue sky and warm sunshine greeted us. We are now pitched up at Villasol where t-shirts and shorts are the preferred attire.
    Safe journey to those traveling down in the coming days.
    Brisey & Pamelaaar.

    Glad you had a good crossing, the winds in the UK didn't stop the boat then?

    Villasol, that's the place to be, it's our preferred site. Roll on April.

    Glad you had a safe journey, will be heading down that way around Christmas but via the tunnel.
    No plans for a site so will be "winging it" will probably ask for availability in the area when I'm on my way.(y)

    I have been told that there are comings and goings day by day. At the moment there are quite a few pitches available. Two rows of pitches at the top of the site are being taken out of service when the present occupants move on. This is to allow new chalets to be built on those pitches.
    Brisey.

    Brian and Pamelaaaaar, glad you arrived safely. We would have walked upto the seafront and waved you off but the scotch got the better of us.
    Have a great time and say hi to everyone for us and remember not to many late nights.:rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:
