We are still at this lovely campsite, Le Roussillonnais Camping, breaking all records so far for our longest stay anywhere in our 8 years of motorhoming, completing 3 weeks today, and we won’t be leaving until Saturday 17th. Adonis’s parcel hasn’t arrived yet, but we are not bothered, as this is a very charming location right by the beach and sand dunes, surrounded by pine trees, which would provide much needed shade in the summer months and we might come back here then, even though it will be a lot busier, with children’s entertainment, etc. We shall see.
I love the fact that the first thing I see when I wake up in the morning is the Mediterranean Sea, which is truly priceless. The pitches at the campsite are very large and flat and we have very friendly neighbours behind us. The camping also has a heated shower block, very welcome this time of year, especially with this Arctic weather spell we’ve been having of late. Temperatures are rising, though, and there are plenty of signs of spring outside, not least the bird songs!
Apart from relaxing around the campsite, we have continued with our long discovery walks and cycle rides along the seafront, to the Port to the south and the Nature Reserve of Man Larrieu to the north, a very interesting sand dunes habitat on both sides of the river Le Tech.
We also loved finding a rough path to walk back from Mas Larrieu, remembering our long-distance walks and backpacking adventures of our younger days not so long ago!
And of course, let’s not forget those gorgeous snowy mountains (The Pyrenees) to the west I just can’t stop photographing. I can’t get over the fact that they are facing the Mediterranean Sea!
I have also kept busy crocheting a couple of items. One is still a secret until my son receives it, but the other I will share with you now. I proudly present you my brand new crocheted basket to store my yarn!
As it is Valentines’s Day today, we have booked a table at a nearby restaurant offering a set menu and live music for the special occasion, strangely not tonight, but Friday! It sounds like fun…
