It is a very nice campsite(N05.44.31.61W75.36.24.94), they are providing electric and water and so we have decided to stay here for Xmas. We cannot get into the main camping area, which is for tents only, but are parked at the edge of the main car park. It is very pretty, the grounds which are quite extensive are bordered on one side with the river and have various trees and flowers planted. Since it is Xmas at the moment they also have a lot of Xmas lights at the entrance and at the restaurant, in addition they have a large crib set up again with lots of lights. Every evening about 5 pm we get inundated with children and their parents, who come for a service at the crib, it seems that if they come for the week they get a present from the camp, talk about a bribe. The sun is extremely hot every day so at the moment we only go to the pool for about half an hour just before it closes. Whilst here we met a family who invited us to a meal with them, the husband could speak quite a lot of English whilst the children could speak some. It was a very pleasant evening all told Xmas day itself was very busy and noisy at the pool and as I write this they are putting up decorations for the New Year which arrives tonight. I will end here as we are moving once again tomorrow and want to post this today.
