Dinner across the street, great atmosphere and steak

Tuesday, September 15th.

It was a short drive to Tarifa. We drove around and over rolling hills many of which had windmill farms perched on top. Must be windy around there.

Once we hit the Atlantic coast again we could see long wide stretches of sandy beaches and Morocco, Africa across the water, another pinch me moment.

The campground we had chosen was on the water side, Rio Jara. There were a few campers around especially where the pitches looked at the water so we settled on a site close to the office in order to receive the Internet. There were many tenters there and we later found out they were there to kite sail or learn how to.

One needed to pack a lunch for the trip across the sand to the water. It must have been a 2 km trek from our pitch to the water’s edge.

Bill took some pictures of the kite surfers; there were hundred’s of what looked like half parachutes in different colours in the air. We were amazed they didn’t run into one another.

Dinner that night was across the street where many of these sports enthusiasts were eating. Like the restaurants in the Banff area have Warren Millar skiing recordings on a loop so did this place only they were kite surfer recordings.
