SANTILLANA DEL MAR
Last nights sleepy spot GPS43.3889272 -4.1070477
The sun shines on the righteous or so they say
Today it’s sunny after three days of ice rain ..hail and lots of wetness it’s sunny .. Let’s go out before It rains again says The Driver
The car park was filling up with tourists as we went to The tourist board to ask for a map and where to pay for our carpark It’s free she says ..
The village is medieval with bright cobbled streets ..
theres a very historical wash house in the street by the church and it’s on the Pilgrim route to Santiago with flags set with the shell the symbol of The Camino route
I’m assuming you came here on a Monday to do the chores and chat about stuff with your mates .. It’s like a film set but people live here passing their precious houses down the generations ..No cars aloud in the village .. if you have to get to your hotel you can drive in drop off your bags and go to park outside.. Even the Parador didn’t have any parking ..we didn’t go in but I love a Parador so posh yet gracious We’ve popped in to a few for afternoon tea or a beer even a hot chocolate .. it’s lovely and with the sunshine spot on .. So where next .. Santander.. We know of a beach front parking spot and here we are .. a walk round the headland .. lots of views of the snowy mountains and the aqua marine sea .. I think we will stay here tonight..
