Awaycation Winter 2022 - Day 13 Part 1

Today was packing up day at Playa Romana. We had made a start yesterday and today there was less to pack and load up. It was around 10.40am when we set off to go around the block to drop the keys through the reception door. As it is closed there is a slot in the window and a cardboard box to catch them!

Our first stop was at Consum. We needed some stuff for the weekend for ourselves and for Reggie. We had run out of Dogador ages ago and he has been eating raw beef mince with added carrots. He has also eaten his way through a large 1.2kg tin of Mercadona dog food. Today I bought some dried biscuit food as a standby in case we run out of raw.

I also bought a bottle of Horchata! I don't know if other areas have it but this one is a Valencian version. I used to drink loads of it when in Murcia.

On the exit to Alcossebre I turned on the Chinese go-pro copy camera to see if it would work. It was on for a while and even during the fuel stop at Alcala at the Repsol garage. Diesel here is €1.759 a litre and then there is 25 cents off per litre. Maybe if it will work in the laptop I can share some boring YouTube footage

We were only coming about 25 miles to the north in any case. We arrived at Camping Alegre del Mar a little before 1pm. Checked in and set up camp. In our case putting the insulated cover on the front screen and trying the EHU. It worked! Maybe the problem that plagued us in France after the first day wasn't at our end! Fingers crossed. We are here two nights.


We had a walk on the beach. It's about 50 yards away. A bit dodgy getting down to it and it looks a bit rough! Reggie alternated between excited and refusing to move!


Once back we decided to put the van on the levellers. The spirit level showed the front needed to come up a little. It's the first time I have used them. Seemed easy enough.


We had lunch. Later we will go and check out the bar. We have a first night free drink.

The rain forecast for the last few days arrived. Not enough to wet the entire windscreen.
