Just a short drive up the coast lies Chipiona & Rota
We service the van at a Repsol garage (with listed facilities) in Sanlucar and park up with quite a few other vans, mainly Spanish, in a car park near the marina in Chipiona
We've seen this site many times before and knowing Alphonso's site in Sanlucar would be either full or very busy we opted for three nights here this year
With Max as our steed and a very long promenade to walk we had all bases covered
To top that the weather was bang on!
We arrive on day 1 of the Chipiona Carnaval
That explains all the Spanish vans then...
We are soon off to our favourite seafront bar and enjoying a huge brandy and obligatory coffees
Only our Chums missing....
Chippy lighthouse in all its glory
Probably eighth on the property wish list but Nina wants it anyway
We were treated to a fine sunset, that and every night
Boots on and off we go next day (via the cafe of course)
The afternoon was spent amongst the heaving populous in the crammed side streets of Chippy enjoying the festivities
The theme here we guessed was 'Post Surgery Blues' but they still sang about their 'Cosmetic' woes
We tumbled in to this bar with surely the loudest music we'd heard in years..
We also got mobbed by Javes and his chums from Seville on our way back to the van who insisted on buying us beers
A sobering ride next day to Sanlucar and a visit to the town square for those oh so tasty 'Tortilla de Gambas'
The late afternoon was spent further south in Rota where, can you believe it, yet another Carnaval was in full swing
Take off and landing may be an issue here...
Her face haunts me..
Defo a Cher looky-likey
We wake up to fog on the last morning so go get provisions from downtown Chippy
These oranges are gonna hurt when they fall off..
Guess where next!
