    Morning everyone...

    I was sad to see new "No Parking for Carvanners" signs up as I drove into Cabanas (Eastern Algarve) at 2.30am this morning. I have been visiting this village (now really spoiled with masses of new holiday apartments) for ten years but this is the first time I have been here in the summer. Boy is it different...

    I pulled up (and parked) outside my friends' bars (two of them side by side see?)

    Had a couple of beers (I must remember to pay today) and then moved the van up the newly laid out seafront road (largely pedestrianised) and spent the rest of what was left of the night in my favourite spot which is not actually on the road but on the side of an unpaved track right by the waterside (photos are posted in an album somewhere on MHF)

    http://www.motorhomefun.co.uk/membe...sual-spot-just-front-red-engine-less-van.html

    Needless to say I am the ONLY motorhome here when there used to be several...

    Solely for the benefit of Funsters I am now sprawled in the sundrenched rear lounge sipping a coffee, watching the local fishermen go about their business and waiting for the GNR patrol vehicle which always used to come down this way regularly to see what happens. My sources tell me it will be a €60 fine... :Eeek:

    But... if I am right and this section is NOT under their juristriction and they just pass me by... then what a result!

    JJ The Brave... :Cool:

    PS... won't be returning until summer's well gone though...

    You are however a Portugese registered camper, and local businessman why would they bother you.

    Nothing "stealth" about the Hymer Roger... are you muddling it up with the Wagon by chance?

    Anyhow... it's 11.30... I'm off to buy (over-priced but who cares?) English sausages and bacon...
