Chasing the sun to Redovan 

With a couple of cancellations on earlier ferries, we were relieved to board the Cap Finestrat in Portsmouth.

Less than 24 hours later, as we neared Santander in torrential rain, a text arrived from Brittany Ferries to warn of autoroute closures due to snow, and we wondered if we’d really gone 1000 miles south from home. 

No point in hanging around, so it was foot to the floor to chase the sun – we finally caught up with it around Valencia, and after an overnight stop met up with Justin and Chris at Redovan… in light drizzle. A quick “café con” break saw clouds part and the crag do its magic drying trick – within an hour it was shorts and shirtless; this is what we came for! 

Helen and I were both feeling a bit ring-rusty and ferry-lagged (if that’s even such a thing) but could feel reasonably satisfied as we packed up in the twilight and headed for a beer

… In 72 hours we’d travelled about 2000km by sea and road and managed half a dozen routes. We’re well and truly back on the road!

  1. Hi Don’t know if this will get to you this way, but I signed up to follow you and this post came through but it won’t let me make a comment. If I go into WordPress it wants me to jump through various hoops I don’t want to jump through. Any ideas? Cheers Ruth
