Saw a whale at lunch! (It was in the sea, not in the restaurant!) Ladbird need not have worried Leaving the ferry proved to be no problem However, circumnavigating Santander was. Missed the bypass and added half an hour to a dark, cold wet journey. Then got lost trying to find the hotel in Gijon and eventually checked in at 11.30, cold and tired. Ladybird and the Creature went straight to bed but Mandy and Roy went and made new friends in a smashing little bar called El Gallinero (the chicken farm) over plates of egg and chips with chicken breast and roasted red peppers. YUM. Back to fabulous suite in Hotel (upgrade) ready for an early start in morning.
