15th February 2015 San Pedro del Pinatar

It was a gloriously sunny day today so the five of us went out to the village of San Pedro del Pinatar, about an hour away from the site. Hamish looked very handsome with his bow tie on. After all, it was the day after St. Valentine’s so he was still feeling special!

After parking up the priority was for Hamish to have his lunch, he is a creature of habit! We had a relaxing stroll along the promenade looking out to sea until eventually we reached the boardwalk at the other end of the village. Lots of people were out enjoying the beautiful scenery too so it felt like we were on holiday.

There were lots of bars and cafes to choose from but we found a very agreeable outdoor cafe along the promenade. Next to us were a family group who had brought their rabbit, Flora with them out for the day. Not only was the waitress very friendly, the food was excellent. Everyone had seafood except me (Angela) but I had a lovely quiche with salad that was freshly prepared.

We spent a good hour or so just whiling away the day, chatting and laughing about inane topics (probably!) before we headed back to the car. It was one of those wonderful days where you realise how lucky you are.

 

About Dean

Angela and I decided that there was more to life than working hard to keep up the payments on the mortgage, to pay the gas, electric, phone bills etc. etc. SO............ In 2008 we sold our house, I initially took a year off (Unpaid) and Angela handed in her notice! We bought a motorhome and set off for a year of travelling! This was the best thing we had done in our lives (Apart from getting married) and we have no regrets. During the year I managed to secure a redundancy package which felt very strange. Almost sad as I had worked for the same company for 19 years (BT). It was always our plan to have a whole year off before thinking about the 'W' word. We began applying to the Camping and Caravanning Club (CCC) for the position of Holiday site assistants in August 2009. After the interview, work experience and induction we were finally given a contract at the CCC site in Inverewe (Scotland). Our plan is to work through the summer in the UK then head to Europe to overwinter before coming back to work the following summer season. Hopefully these few words and our blog will inspire others to get off the hamsters wheel and see that there is more to live than having a house and material things. A cliche I know but this is not a rehearsal, life is too short!!! Since our first contract in Scotland we have worked a winter contract in Oxford (never again!) not Oxford but a winter contract. Hereford for two years, living in a yurt for one! And Cornwall. In between our working we have also travelled a bit. Hopefully this website will give you an insight into our alternative lifestyle. Get out there and live the dream!
