Alan saved us from a grotty campsite just too far outside Sitges to make it easy to ignore the out of order swimming pool, closed toilets and unlevel stoney ground.  However he threw us into a Butlins style holiday camp with Ikea style washing up facilities.  This was surprisingly just what we wanted (after a few days of getting used to all the people). I haven't found the arcade yet but we are very much enjoying the Ludic (children's playroom) with different toys and books. 

The beach is fab with a huge marina with plenty of gin palaces to gawp at. More importantly there was a model train track which was a real hit as you can see.  The Med is much warmer than the Atlantic so we've had a great time splashing in the waves.

This week's health and nature update is that nits have joined us on our travels.  Having shaken off the Red Kites and the odd cockroach these little monsters are going to take a little more beating. I'm hoping that the Spanish-Italian border control insists on quarantine for them.
 
The van is also needing a little attention as the exhaust tail piece has fallen off somewhere on the road down from the Mountains.
