I am a Nomad, I live on the road in a van and blog about all sorts of stuff that comes up in my life. I am a freelance Artist, Writer and Photographer. This is not a vanlife blog or a health blog, new age traveller blog or a vegan blog, it's all of that and more! You will see some rants here and some ramblings as well as lots of photos. From the menu on the right you can look through old posts by date or by the labels I have given them. Please subscribe if you enjoy my blog. Love only Love.
After leaving the Tarifa area after 3 months staying there we headed to the hills around Alora, a town inland from the horribleness of the Costa Del Sol. Alora is a nice little town set on some steep hills & all around there are hills with houses & farms dotted around. Spring was well under way by the time we arrived even though it had been the driest winter in 40 odd years.
I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw cows relaxing on the beach. They didn't have beach towels or sun cream but they might have been hiding a windsurf for later! I also took a walk into the old town of Tarifa, a lovely old town & well worth a visit if only for the beautiful chocolate/cake shop near the main entrance which makes the street smell delicious!
For some of the time we parked on another beach closer to Tarifa called Los Lances. It is a lovely stretch but it does get very windy. It made a change of scene though. There are loads of campervans that park on the stretch of beach, known locally as the landing strip. There is a lot of bird life nearby where the river meets the sea.
We got back to the Pig Field near Tarifa about mid January. We were going to be staying here a couple of months while Agua had her vaccinations & microchip done. Again we took lots of long walks on the beach taking in the sights & sounds & taking lots of photos!
Dead Fish is dinner for the Ants!
This was once a Mouse!
We then arrived at my Mums house in Los Alcazares where we stayed for a week. While there we visited Calblanque National Park where we saw a nest of Processionary Caterpillars. These caterpillars can cause a nasty irritation to skin & can be very harmful to dogs.
