The Caravilla- a final fling!
We're Caravilla bound this weekend, the first time in a while. We didn't get up at all in September- there was simply no spare time- so we're all really looking forward to it...even though I'm pretty sure that the October experience up there, will be a little different to the July/August one.
The site'll be quieter for a start, it'll be dark by 7pm and I very much that doubt we'll see much of the ice cream van! I won't be packing any shorts and t shirts either- this time it'll be more fleeces and wellies, and the central heating & double glazing should definitely come into its own. (Thank God I put my foot down about that last May!)
I think the part that I'm looking forward to the most though, is wrapping up warmly and walking the beach. It clears my head and grounds me and I really need that right now.
You know how there's stages in your life, when change is in the air and decisions need to be made, and everything's a bit unsettling and scary...but exciting too? Well, we're sort of in the middle of a phase just like that, and I won't say any more right now because it's all swirling about in my head, and it'll probably be all change again tomorrow anyway...but bear with me, I will.
So I'm hoping that this weekend the beach walks will work their magic, and we'll begin to see our road ahead a little clearer.
Now there I go again-as usual I've veered completely off base, because what I actually planned to do, was to seek a little practical advice from any of you seasoned Caravilla owners out there.
We've a final visit planned towards the end of the month, and then we'll have to close it up properly for the Winter. The pipes are being drained down by the site, but what of inside the van? What do I need to do? What can I leave up there and what should I take home? I've heard rumours of bowls of salt in every room. Is this true? Any advice or tips would be mucho appreciated. Till next time, my loveliesxxxx
