Day 11 Sat 19.02.2011

Location:  ACSI Camping de Haro

Long / Lat
We left Biarritz at 8.00am and crossed into Spain about half an hour later heading for an ACSI campsite in Haro. We had decided that we would stay off the toll roads again but we both agreed that if we were travelling later in the day when the roads are busier we would use the toll road to cross into Spain.
The weather wasn’t very good, rain most of the way so visibility was poor which was a pity because the views as we crossed the Pyrenees we breath taking. Would love to do it again sometime on a clear sunny day.
When we arrived in Haro we had a bit of trouble finding the campsite and once again drove into the town. We eventually stumbled upon the yellow campsite signs and located the site.
The road leading to the site is narrow and the entrance involves a tight turn (well tight in our 28 foot van). The staff are friendly and very helpful and speak good English. There are lots of static caravans on the site and the touring pitches are a bit small so we have parked on the grass field which involved a bit of wheel spin and churning up mud as the ground is wet. Slip mats now in place.
The site has Wi-Fi, €9.00 for two days, a bit expensive but we can update the blog and catch up with our emails. We are going to stay here for 2 nights then head to Salamanca for one more stop before we cross into Portugal.The shower blocks are clean and the heating is on.
Tomorrow we plan to go for a walk into the town.
