Thomson's Travels is a travel website written to chronicle the travels of Simon and Julia...
We awoke in the knowledge that we were moving on, to another campsite. The title, "A Long Day" is a little misleading as I will explain at the end of today's post (no cheating!).
Just after we awoke, there was the sound of movement outside our bedroom window. The campsite had been steadily hemming us in on all sides with ancient two birth tatty caravans and, it turned out that they had placed one with it's tow hook so close to our caravan, we had to move our van so that we could empty the toilet, which we always do before leaving a campsite (It gives me 2 days without having to think about that particular chore!). We breakfasted and readied ourselves for the off, which included paying, chatting to the lovely family (the ones with the 4 year old and a dog in the Dutch caravan!) and saying our goodbyes then headed out of the gate... In the entrance, we stopped, and set up the SatNav, by motorway arriving at 11:30hrs or by normal roads arriving at 12:03hrs. There was no contest, the slow road it was.
The drive along the coast, through the costal towns of Porto San Giorgio, Porto San Elpido, Civitanova Marche and finally Porto Recanati, where we finally shouted abuse at the railway as it headed inland. Dubious of the area, after the past 4 days, we were relieved to see the entrance to the Campsite in the distance Camping BellaMare. With an area set aside for arrivals and a welcoming smile at reception, we felt reassured that the site was as pleasant as it looked.
We signed in and picked one of the many empty pitches and, after setting up, we wandered around the campsite, wondering why we hadn't come here 3 days ago.
The "A Long Day" title Explained
Not much to explain really, the long day started after our walk around the site and ended when we went inside to get supper ready, a long day soaking up the sunshine in a relaxing atmosphere
