Four bowls of water, most expensive pitch

Day 15, 18th August Oliva Spain.

semi-overcast 32 °C

OMG......what a crud night. We knew it was hot as even the staff at the meal last night were complaining but I have never had a night like it. No air, even the fan could not help us. Bodhi drank four full bowls of water during the night and he really struggled.

Despite this we are up early and quickly all agree to move on. Despite being on the beach the pitches all have very high hedges and along the front they are all fixed homes. Even only being a few rows back cuts down on the sea breeze so much that you are just baked alive.

Camp packed up we set off for a site that Ethan has been eyeing for days. After only driving for a couple of hours we arrive at the site. If we didn't have Bodhi it would have been perfect. Clean, very organised and WiFi. WiFi that works is rare hence us going days without blogging. Right next to a busy but charming looking town. When I say next to I should say in. It was amazing. Across the street was everything you could need, busy stores, bars restaurants! Only snag was we do have Bodhi. It would be too busy and we wouldn't be allowed in with him. So drive on.

Another hour on we are what is too be our home for hopefully the next couple of days. The pitches are very large and ours has an awning that covers the entire pitch. Lovely bar and once again right on a sandy beach. Only down side is the price. At nearly eighty euros a night it is double what we have put away for each nights camp.

The pitch is lovely and gives us all a respite from the glare if not the heat of the sun. Take away pizza is the best pizza we've had, and very fairly priced at only seven euros for a large. Toilets get four ticks, clean, toilet seat and paper in each cubicle and you can lock the door. However the showers are not so good. Two of four available to us ladies have no shower heads and there is no power plus its cold. Although being cold is n issue for me as I've sweated off at least four pounds just today. Dan and Ethan are equally unamused with theirs as well. Not what you expect for the money.

We will see about tomorrow.

Read through the last few days worth of blog and it brought back some fond memories! Good travelling with you so keep sending these blogs out so we can keep up with your adventure. We've had a lazy day today with a nice slow walk along the beach then an (almost) quiet couple of hours at the pool this afternoon. We had our evening meal in the hotel for the first time, it was a buffet supper with several different courses, ice-cream for Dad and fruit salad for Mum to finish. Tried to phone you tonight (2200) but maybe you'd already gone to bed. Keep enjoying yourselves and stay safe! Love, Mum and Dad
