My intention was to work on a project of two halves. The first being based around the area where land meets sea.

This text is taken from my new Facebook page. I intend to add posts both here and of Facebook as my adventures on my Honley continue.

Camping Parque Tropical in Estepona was our next stop.  As the name suggested the site was full of unusual plants, which of course were not at their best this time of year.  It is obviously a site that people take pride in.  The surrounding area seemed to have been quite grand at one point, there is a huge rather shabby golfing hotel, but then became run down during the financial...

On paper, or to be more precise on screen, the campsite near Manilva should have been perfect.  Next to the beach, close to the town, swimming pool and plenty of bars around.  In reality it was another mistake.  The pool was closed, and thanks to a photographer with a wide angle lens, was no where near as big as it looked on the website.  The site was very formal, reflecting the...

Tordesillas was our second Spanish stop over.  This lovely medieval town is on the banks of the Duoro river and has a history of its own version of bull fighting. The fight against a five year old bull was banned after extensive complaints from animal rights protestors, which the town still isn’t happy about.  A statue of a magnificent bull greets you as you cross the bridge from...

A brief visit to Zaurutz in the Basque area of northern Spain

The second stop was in Chez Gendon, a lovely campsite in the middle of the vineyards in Blaye, south west France.  We only stayed one night but that gave plenty of scope for work.  The front of the campsite faces the vineyards, whilst the rear borders chestnut woodland.  The quite dense chestnut canopy gave the opportunity to play with the pools of light created on the woodland f...
