SPAIN Nice beach side free camping down the east coast as far as Altea



N TARRAGONA, PLATJA LLARGA N 41 07 76 E 1 18 28
A really handy spot just below the main road.  50 minutes walk along to Tarragona and lots of beaches nearby as well as one directly in front of you.  Also bus stop just by the main road.  Water supply from the beach showers and toilet dump beside the toilet.  Well used, 20 vans there one night but the Police patrol and there were no problems. 


L’AMETTLA DE MER BY HOTEL L’AMETTLA N40 52 509 E 0 47 720
South end of the town on a track beside the hotel.  Probably not so good if the hotel is open but we visited in November and the hotel was closed until mid December.


L’AMPOLLA SOUTH END TOWARDS DELTA DE L’EBRA N40 47 658 e 0 42 162
Lovely spot behind the beach at the south side of town on a dirt track leading towards the delta.  Foot bath showers by the entry road for a water supply.

Had your Email address book pinched ?

I recently joined in the HAL digital workshops on a cruise and one of the classes was about PC security.  Recently I have had many bogus emails from my friends email addresses and in class someone suggested a way to stop your address book being infiltrated.

Make the first name and email address in your address list a bogus one such as aaaaaabbbbb with a bogus email address then the computers should not be able to find your address book.  Now I am no computer nerd but thought this would be worth a try and to share with others.

Also if you want more info notes from the computer course check out the free digital workshop handouts for great advice especially for novices, or get yourself booked on a Holland America Line cruise and take the free classes !
