We walked the hounds, and carried out some chores before hitting the road again. Our ‘rough’ plan was to follow the med coast southwards, but travelling with our 4 legged children in Spain has thrown up some challenges.
Our dogs love to run, off the lead, sniff and chase and have fun. Unfortunately most of the beaches we have come across have had ‘No Dogs!!’ signs everywhere.
Some of the locals completely ignore the signs and let their dogs on the beach anyway, but rules are rules, and we feel uncomfortable ignoring clear signage.
So after leaving our resting place last night (a lovely site but again I had work the charm as they only allowed 2 dogs, not 3), we continued down the coast. Everywhere we came to had the dreaded ‘No Dogs’ sign, so we headed for the hills and found ‘Paraje Natural del Desert de les Palmes’.
We headed up the windy steep road and then came across a restaurant at the top with a car park large enough for Dizzy (the motorhome) but it was marked Private.
I wandered across to the restaurant and asked permission to stay a while. The lady I spoke to was lovely and agreed, and so we then set off with the ‘4 legged’ kids and took in some amazing views, mostly of the coast line that we thought we’d be walking, and the coast is pretty built up. We didn’t see another sole, which suited us just fine.
It’s great to have a plan, but sometimes when the plan doesn’t work out, fate takes over. We really enjoyed our walk, took some nice photo’s and had a great coffee at the restaurant afterwards. Sometimes you need to just go with the flow and see what happens.
