30th January 2015 Cabo de Palos

Today was another glorious day so Angela and I went in the car with Al, Isabel and Hamish to the lighthouse at Cabo de Palos.

We parked up at the bottom and walked up to the top which doesn’t take long and the views are superb. Angela and I keep saying we should make up a packed lunch and cycle in to spend a few hours there watching the world go by. We still haven’t got round to it yet!

Hamish was wearing his Tilley hat and looked very smart, he has a thing for hats!


It was interesting to see how sheltered one side was from the other. Looking towards the strip there were hardly any waves but looking out towards the cafe called Busquets there were some big crashing waves.

We parked the car up and walked along the fishing boats towards the cafe. There was lots of activity from boats coming and going and fisherman mending their nets.

While we were having a coffee we noticed a man sat with a ferret on a lead and later saw him taking it for a walk.

The waves were crashing over the harbour wall and we were trying to get a picture the moment the waves crashed sending spray up in the air!

After a coffee and a good natter we walked back to the car and drove back to site, Hamish snuggled up nicely between his Mum and Aunty!

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!
