Hi Alan

We are still house / mum sitting at Par until Monday morning then we will be mobile again. We are hopefully heading for a C&CC holiday site on the north Cornish coast. If I am allowed by SWMBO we will swing round your way en route, I will ring first though.

Still at Monsaraz down below on the lake.Fishing for bass is a waste of time,first in September a goer although the carp fishermen are happy.The locals say winter was the worst they have had for years and I have to say "for the end of May the weather is not good".We have had thunder storms and cook your head sunshine.Been here two weeks and only another three vans were here for the night.I dont know why cos I went up to the official aire in Monsaraz on the motorbike and apart from the view there is nothing .
We will stop for another week at least,water we get from the lake and catdyn it.

hope the summer is on its way and last nights storm was the last we see for awhile.

We have had 20 dgrees today as well and 4 hours of pissing rain.We loved the Algarve 30 odd years ago when it was still part of Portugal but now with the "peste branco"we dont go further South than Chicken Maries.Same with Spain no more "Costas"and the "plaga blanco"prefering to be in the countryside.The water here is warm enough to swim in,your van doesnt rust to death with the salt in the air. We filled up with diesel in Spain at one of the stick your banknotes in gasolinerias,500 litres at 1.03 Euros,that is 2,500 kilometers for us.Fond memories of waiting for the boats coming it at Lagos and grilled sardines on the beach.You could buy fish in the fish market but now the restaurants buy everything at a better price than the Portugese can afford to feed the mass tourism. Times sadly change. Go with the flow has never been my credo!!!

The weather in mid France is very consistent. ......hot mornings followed by an afternoon thunder storm. Made a slight mis-judgement yesterday and got caught out about 2oom from my van......I jogged the first 150m but then my calf muscle popped and I ended up in pain hopping the last 50m getting soaking wet in the process......
It's actually raing as I write this - 20.13 Wed pm.....
