Tuesday 21st October 2014 to Saturday 25th October 2014
Picture taken shortly after we arrived at Camping Ria Formosa, Cabanas – our new neighbour is Swedish with a Carthago tag, very nice.
and just across from us a Concorde motorhome owned by a German couple who, along with their neighbours (S class twin wheel Hymer) are occupying 4 spaces, their cars, a Smart car and a Clio are absent in this picture…..those Concordes are very tasty but £175.0K? Hmmmmmm!
Across the road and to the left of us, a ‘show’ mobile, the spaces we are on will be taken by these mobiles once the sales roll in…..shame
On the next level down and behind us, a UK coach conversion, one for Coola – Got your tyre protectors yet Coola?
One further level down is this ‘special’ being towed by a tractor, perfect vehicle for Portuguese roads
On site Bar/Restaurant/Take-away – €4.50 for a take away meal, that’s about £3.66…x 2 plus vino @ £1.02, that’s enough change from a tenner to…erm……buy another bottle of wine and a bag of mintoes
On-site Super Mercado – Buy your Mintoes here, except they don’t have any but there is an English shop just around the corner……
Layby seen here on the right could take 3 or 4 motorhomes. The campsite is just around the top corner and has ‘state-of-the-art’ WiFi, open network (no password). This is giving Coola ideas…….
Tiled houses – don’t forget to pack your Cillit-Bang
We love Cabanas – the sea front, masses of restaurants, the road, a long boardwalk, a lagoon stretching over to an island that has a fabulous beach on the far side…………and not too many people around……Harry Redknapp has a gaff here
Amanda on the boardwalk that was installed about 8 years ago
The boardwalk overlooking the lagoon with the island across the way… the ferry is €2.50 return… that’s £2.00
Another picture at the far end of the boardwalk
100 yards beyond the end of the boardwalk is Forte De Sao Joao Da Barra – well worth a look at http://www.fortesaojoaodabarra.com/ it is now a guesthouse. Some good pics of Cabanas de Tavira on this website
