HETTY HEADS HOME

ORIO 43.28655, -2.12725

Another find… free to park ..out of Season Winter only ..A do not park in summer

Surfs up in this just gorgeous tiny bay a good walk to the end of the jetty and back round the marina ..

We’re just biding time till we head for the booze shopping and the ferry for home so to stay in this spot is an added bonus

Not a lot to say about it really just nice 👍

Another good nights sleep and off to Carrefour Hypermarket to collect our Christmas booze.. Again not so impressed all a bit expensive so where to ..? LIDL so much better and now Hetty is loaded .. lots of Rioja …Spanish sparkle as not a bottle of Prosecco to be found but as long as it sparkles and it’s dry it’s fine for my Christmas Day breakfast for the kids

Bilbao port allows camper vans to sleep over on the night before boarding the ferry.. very civilised.. lots of folk sitting out in the sun some have tables chairs and drinks out .. we just laugh 😂 Not for us public drinking .. it’s not a beach 🏖

What a windy night Hetty being rocked with rain lashing down .. Ferry is late 1-30min so far but we don’t worry ..Not keen to get back to bad English weather ..We love this big Ferry as it’s got a French restaurant but as we get on board at 10am find our cabin isn’t ready so off to a full and I mean a full English Breakfast .. Cereal .. Bacon 🥓 🍳 eggs mushrooms🍄 sausage and Toms Toast and hash browns Then croissants🥐 jam and non stop coffee

☕️

Still sunny as we sat out watching Spain disappearing into the haze of a lovely morning ..

An announcement on the tannoy regarding safety ITS GONNA BE ROUGH

So be careful I am a good sailor but J had to get me sea sick 🤢 armbands and pills IT WAS ROUGH I’m walking like a drunk 😵 without alcohol 🍺

Best place is laying down 🤮

Pills work and the French restaurant is our aim .. stagger on the corridors

The food is very special but did I enjoy .. sort of but still a yukky tummy

Bed and a very bumpy night ..

Another big breakfast and off the ferry only to be hauled into the search area of the Border security.. Probably because we look so normal .. questions asked Where have we been .. name the places .. Do you have PORN on board . What !!!😵..The Driver says why import when it’s free on line 😷🙄😂

We were well and truly searched I was waiting for the full body and orifice search next but we were allowed back into our country without any more indignity..

A lovely drive up through the Cotswolds …Autumn colours and showers …Now we are pulled off the road as The Drivers had enough of the M6

A car park in the village of Penkridge south Staffordshire

Wine out supper yet to be defined

Tomorrow home and the next post will be Statistics but we think we’ve done around 5000 miles

Panning gold in the Yukon..Pacific island hopping ..Far east and so on ..John won't go to India but I managed to get him to Morocco and Sri Lanka but didn't expect a Tsunami.
