We arrived at the campsite, this was down a small back lane and set in a wonderful mature tree orchard, it even had a swimming pool, Linda went in to the reception and got us all booked in for two nights, out came Claudia, unhooked the chain across the drive (no electronic barriers here) and walked in front to exactly position us, there are no demarcation lines of bushes here, you get put where Claudia thinks is best.

It was very hot but we had at first considered sitting under the shade of the umbrellas, but once inside asked about wine and something to eat, the proprietor pointed to wine on tap, Vino Verde! He then went into the kitchen and out came his wife the cook, the menu had only 10 items (in pictures for us tourists) Linda wanted a toasted egg, cheese and ham sandwich and I the clams, just then she looked up at the TV screen and saw that the Royal Wedding was being televised, she then said let us stay inside and watch (since when had she become a Royalist?). our large glass of Vino Verde arrived closely followed by our food. Very enjoyable and after the Wedding at least there was football orientated News about Ronaldo being voted and presented with footballer of the year once again.

It was in the square that Claudia had informed us that the butcher came, but only for 1 hour between 11 & 12:00 well he didn’t turn up this Sunday. We did buy some Tomatoes from the only stall holder.

Never mind we popped into the little corner shop, a right Aladins cave and bought some supplies. Then across the road to join the other neer do wells that were not in church, they were participating in wine and beer we had coffee and a savoury puff pastry.

After our viewing we sat in the sun Linda ate an ice and I a hamburger and chips but no bun. We then headed out of town, stopping at a supermarket on the way to get meat for a planned BBQ , it is still in the planning and the meat in the fridge.
