Bonterra Park, Benicassim, Spain (06/03/2017 - 09/03/2017)

Monday, 6th March 2017

So far, it has been warm, today, it is positively HOT, by the time we return from our ten mile bicycle ride, it is 27C!.

On our previous visit here, the cycle track to the next town was only partly usable, but, it is all now completed, and, very pleasant.

Blue skies, sunny and hot. 

One problem we have, or, to be more precise, Kathleen has, she reckons the van is not quite level. Checking it with the spirit level, she is right (of course), but, I have it as high as it will go on the levelling blocks.

Google to the rescue and I am abe ti find the location of a local Caravan/Motorhome Accessories shop, so, we combine our morning walk with a visit to the Accessory shop. We cannot get a higher set of levelling blocks, buy, we are able to get another set, the plan being to use two sets, one on top of the other.

Instead of leaving me to it, Kathleen recruits "helpers", it definitely a case of more hands do NOT make light work, and, at the end of two hours of messing about, I think the level is worse, although, everyone else appears to believe it is "slightly better".

The brightspot of the day, the evening is warm enough to eat our evening meal outside, one of Kathleen's favourite activities.

Blue sky and sunshine, although, Kathleen does have a complaint, it is "only" 20C today.

It is even hot enough to eat breakfast outside!

Cycling (16 miles) today.

Blue sky, sunshine and hot 25C.

Thursday is Market Day in Benicassim. The town centre car parking area is taken over by dozens of market stalls, with the usual array of fruit, vegetables, shoes, clothing, handbags and various other things you never knew you needed or wanted.

As usual the crowds descend, Kathleen does her bit to boost to the Spanish economy, by spending 20Euro on slippers, trainers and sports socks, we then retire to "Casa Vincente" (bar/cafe) for beer and free tapas, along with most of the campsite it appears. 

We have a rest from cycling, and, instead go walking along the coast, approximately five miles.

Kathleen must be feeling particularly affluent, because in the evening, I am treated to a meal.
