Feb 6, 2014 - Our 27th Wedding Anniversary

Yesterday morning we set off in a light misty rain which steadily got heavier so most of our drive to Cadiz was in rain. We arrived at Camping Playa Las Dunas (N36°35'14" W6°14'26") in El Puerto de Santa Maria about 1pm and the rain started to ease. At about 4pm who should turn up beside us but Glenn and Albertine! by which time the sun was trying to come out, so about 5pm a little “function” was had. Today was overcast but in the afternoon while the sun was out we walked into town and back. However at 7pm when we walked back into town with...

Feb 5, 2008 - Cadiz

Moved to a campsite called Playa las Dunas in El Puerto Da santa Maria located opposite Cadiz, we can see the city out across the bay from the entrance to the campsite. Seems carnival season is in full swing here, Cadiz has " carnival in the streets" this week and El Puerto has its carnival procession on 10th february so this should be fun! El Puerto is an interesting place in its own right as it is the sea port for Shiraz, home town of Sherry. As a result the town has several large bodegas including Osbourne,Terry, Caballero,501 who...
