Awaycation Winter 2022 - Day 9

Another day in Alcossebre. We had a lie in today. Once again we were up with Reggie during the night. Being away seems to have put his systems in a bit of a spin.

We had decided on a bit of a lazy day. After all we are on holiday.

So it was rather late when we decided to find the Mercadona supermarket in Oropesa.

Claire and I stayed there quite a few years ago. Since then it seems to have grown much bigger.

The run down the N340 avoiding the motorway was relatively traffic free. Before motorways this road ran from the border with Portugal to the border with France. All along the Mediterranean coast. I rode most of it back in the late 80's from south to north.

As we only have the van we took Reggie. So to give him a walk once we had shopped we parked near the sea. Not the best beach here, but after November 1st dogs are permitted on them. A shame Alcossebre doesn't adopt the same idea!

The hotels and apartments are set back with a wide promenade and grassed areas.

Once Reggie had had enough, we retraced our steps back to Alcossebre. Of course, no trip here would be complete without the satnav taking us through the least main parts of town! There must be a direct route into the town!!!

So tonight. Dinner. Watch another movie on the laptop downloaded from Amazon?

Tomorrow? The cleaners are due in and so we need to be out. Maybe desayuno where we found them open yesterday? Or maybe Peñiscola?
