|Camping Orbitur Valverde|
26th May 2009
We woke up and decided to move on today. We were going to stay until Thursday and go back to the market but we've been here long enough now. That's the great thing - if you're bored, or don't like your neighbours, or even if the weather is better somewhere else, you can just pack the van up in about 20 minutes and you're off. You can't do that with a caravan, and as we do get bored easily, I think we made the right decision in buying the Motorhome. We're aiming to go along the coast further to Lagos or thereabouts and see what it's like. As we were going back past the shopping mall, we stopped off and had a MacDonald's for lunch - surprisingly it was nice too - then stocked up on wine and a few bits from Continentale before driving to the next campsite which is another Orbitur one.
We didn't like it very much, a bit soulless and it was really windy. So windy in fact we had to take the awning down almost as soon as we'd put it up. Also the single guy on the pitch opposite had a large dog that kept barking. Shame, if it had been nice we intended to get the bus into Lagos the next day as we'd heard that it was an interesting town. We decided we’d only stay one night and push on up north tomorrow and see if we could make it to Lisbon. We didn't even sit outside in the evening; it was too blowy so I played AC before going to bed.
