    Off from the Studio for a few weeks jaunt around Portugal. I drop my friend (and colleague) Chris off at Lisbon airport and then...

    Have to deliver four big batteries (120 amp) to "The Man" Viv and then... who knows...?

    If any Funster is around the area (Pego da Altar tonight then west coast...) keep you eyes open for the most beautiful Hymer in the world and pop around for a pie and a pint...

    Writing list of stuff to move from Wagon to Hymer (Fly hunting equipment) now...

    Must remember the screen stickers...

    I am back from the wilderness...

    I have met up with Viv The Guru at a new place for me Praia de Santo Andre...

    Beachs...2 (one sea, one lagoon)

    Bars... 3

    Sun... wall to wall...

    Breeze to keep us cool...

    Water taps all over the place...

    But my internet went down! DISASTER... no internet for two days... NIGHTMARE...

    Drove to the Vodafone shop in Sines (20 kms)... it was an accounting fault...:Blush::Blush:

    Bought new speedier thingy, plugged into the sharing dock and I, together with two of my mates, are online again... YIPPEE :thumb:

    JJ :Cool:

    Photos to follow...[SIZE]

    Looks like it is going to be another hot and sunny day.

    I am thinking about taking a dip today... won't be able to lie on the beach though... people will think I am a beached great white whale and try and push me out to sea...

    The news is that the motorhomes were very nicely asked to leave Porto Cova (just down the coast from here) after being given 24 hours notice.

    I think that might have something to do with why this location has suddenly filled up.

    It was very quiet when I got here on Tuesday.

    Now it has motorhomes, caravans and tents all over the place... There is even a line of washing out... :Angry:

    What I might do is photograph the "paid" site up the road and this "off site location" so Funsters can compare....

    Three photos... the first is my first holiday stop one kilometre from the airport... then the batteries I delivered from the Newbury Show to Viv and the third is the view from my drop down bed at 7.15 this morning...

    JJ :Cool:


    PS. I hope I am not boring people...

    Pic 1 ..always nice to go for a campsite with a top class restaurant and entertainment facility

    Pic 2.. If you get self venting batteries next time you will find them ok to fit inside the van

    Pic 3.. an emptied campsite, now I know which side of the van you sog vents to

    :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:Glad to see you are having a jolly jaunt :BigGrin::BigGrin:

    We did not all become multi millionaires on Tuedsday as you will have worked out since we are all still posting :shout::shout::cry::cry::cry:

    After a busy morning computing I rested all afternoon and even let a little bit of sun onto my lily white legs...

    Took these snaps of the park up...

    To far to walk to the official camp site for comparison photos... maybe tomorrow...

    Well Mr Stewart... don't want to argue (as you know I never do:Rofl1:) but there is a Fun screen sticker on the screen and a "JJ Lives Here" Rally badge on the dash (visible through the screen to passers by) but to keep you happy I will put up another one... OK? :thumb:
