Squiggly green lines.

After sitting in the shadows of the Pyrenees which dominate the most of the skyline round Argelés-sur-mer and so much anticipation of hairpin bends, magnificent vistas and a practice run via Quillans it seems the crossing into Spain via the D900/N11 was not the route to take for an intense driving experience. Colour me gutted, what an anticlimax; the practice run was just so much more fun. I almost feel like going back and turning right at Quillans instead of going straight on and coming over that way, the road looks squiggly enough on the map to provide good entertainment. Again, looking at the map, a drunken spider appears to have drawn a green line south of here (Platja d’Aro) I could try that route to hook up with the N11 again when I head south. Ah, light dawns – I didn’t cross the Pyrenees, they are further west, I crossed the Alberes mountains. Note to self – more thorough research needed for accurate results. Next time …

So three nights have been spent on an aire here on the Costa Brava and it’s costa nada! Parked up alongside a wetland nature reserve, it’s actually quite pleasant and only about five minutes walk into the town centre and bit more to the beach, all very modern and touristy, but minus the tat, in fact many of the shops are way out of my spending range. More lovely sculptures here, even on the nature reserve! It’s been hot, hot, hot in the middle of the day so I’ve adopted Spanish hours and a siesta, or as my Aussie mate would call it – a Nanna Nap – so easily managed to wake up early enough to catch the end of the lunar eclipse.

Currently in the local library to download Chrome or Explorer as none of the Spanish cafés seem to support Safari – I’ve been tearing my hair out trying to get on line. A couple more days here and then off inland a bit to find some history and some nice squiggly green lines …
