Three of them. Where’s the next race?

The windy highway is living up to its reputation today. Could do without that, having such a long day ahead of us.

Quite glum to be leaving Spain, and on such a fantastic day too.

Ho, hum. These are the breaks and we shall make the best of a poor job.

See you next May, Espana.

Ah, the windy highway. The last time we came down here our awning blew open…

Thankfully it’s not even close to being that windy today. Phew.

Not so good now that the tolls have been removed and there are HGVs to contend with. A bit macho, your Spanish lorry driver..

Rather a different day today but still warm, with 24 degrees expected by the time that we reach Ribamar. Those Happy Hour beers will be tempting.

Shopped this morning before leaving, to find the Christmas Turron had arrived overnight.

I confess; we spent an inordinate amount on Turron and chocolate.

We just met our first Spanish self service fuel, there has always been an attendant whenever we have fueled up on previous visits.

The machine took the card, asked which pump (!?), what fuel, and how much. It chucked the ticket out, said something in Spanish, and then failed to provide any diesel. We are 40€ down and with no idea what we did wrong.

Will now find filling station with attendant!

(Clues gratefully received if you know how things work in Spain.)
