Northern Spanish Coast…and home

A final belated blog entry from our summer European adventure. The last week of our adventure was spent on three coastal sites in Northern Spain.

Started with a couple of days in Penarronda campsite near Asturias and enjoyed a lovely coastal walk, an afternoon on the beach and finally back to watch the World Cup Final. This was the last of the sunshine for a while.

Next stop was Perlora campsite further east on the coast near Candas.  Wandered into the town for  an evening meal on our first night where we enjoyed people watching for a few hours. It was very busy, jam packed with lovely and loud Spanish families, parambulating, eating, drinking and having fun. Our pitch was right next to the sea, overlooking an inlet and a small sea lake with lovely views. Rained and rained. One night it got very windy, so much so that Tony had to wind in our awning at 2am as we were worried it might blow away. Spent many hours in Luci finishing up the final series of Enterprise.

Our final stop was in Camping Arenas,  just down the road from Santander.  Lots of GB caravans and motorhomes’ for the first time, but plenty of Spanish and Dutch too. Enjoyed the site bar and restaurant a couple of times and a walk to the nearby beach. Beach restaurant was full of  Spanish weekenders enjoying a long noisy lunch. Weather here also still very mixed until our final morning when the sun shone.

Wine shopping for T in ahead of  a very long, expensive but comfy ferry ride to Portsmouth and then we were back in blighty. Stopped at Bladon Chains campsite near Blenheim palace for a final night, enjoyed a curry and final pub crawl around the very bijou but expensive Woodstock before heading home looking forward to our own bed which we don’t have to make up every night.
