We had a fun night last night at the Pescador Erimaño eating paella and watching Flamenco. Interesting it was the least seafood heavy paella we have had and yet the most tasty. Often we find the rice is really over cooked and soggy, but this was a really lovely flavour and the rice was almost nutty, just perfect texture. I think we were the only UK voices in the restaurant for the Flamenco. There were three women dancing, not sure when men were dispensed with for this form of dancing. It was however an impressively strong display, the movements and rhythm just exude passion, proof sexy dancing does not have to involve twerking 🙄
We left the campsite in Peñiscola this morning still perplexed as to where the services were supposed to be. Helpfully there was nature reserve immediately behind the site so we had a nice dog walk before we left. However, both map and reception were equally unclear for grey and black waste disposal. We decided as we had a few miles to cover to push on as we were at another site tonight.
We had another approximately 220km to travel today to get to our campsite just north of Barcelona. This will be our base for exploring for 3 nights. There used to be secure car parks etc to explore Barcelona by motorhome but most of these seem to have been shutdown. We found a campsite just up the coast with a great pool and a daily bus into Barcelona for only €7 each and they take dogs.
It was another pleasant trip in nice green and hilly countryside with a good supply of castles and orange trees plus even a Roman Triumphal arch.
We arrived at Barcelona Camping early afternoon and got a good spot with some shade and a sea view. We made some lunch then cracked on with a bit of Spring cleaning and laundry. Then we both swam half a mile each in the lovely pool. So maybe not so much chilling out! We did then have a nice meal at the on-site restaurant and it is now cool enough to sit out with a drink. Our pitch is right by the wifi repeater so we are hopeful for Bristol v Exeter rugby later. Not a bad day 😀
