Arrived safely in Santander, very calm crossing. Take plenty of £££ to spend on ferry, everything is cheaper in sterling than euros.

Have set up camp in Santillana del Mar. Apparently there was a huge downpour here last night.

Looking forward to meeting up with everyone on Monday - hope your crossing is as smooth as ours.

PL3 6RL for Marsh Mills Sainsburys. You can't miss it coming in on the A 38 from Exeter. It's a massive White monstrosity on your left hand side just as you get to the outskirts.

One more sleep till the ferry. Battery all charged and ready for video and pics. Van being packed today, and look forward to meeting some at Plymouth and the rest when we get to Rob`s. Weather looks ok, so should be a good trip.

Just about to start packing now. Think we've got everything.

Are we going to meet at Sainsburys (Marsh Mills) or what about at Millbay Docks? From memory there is a car park just before the check in booths which will be smaller than Sainsburys!! We are easy either way.

Hopefully your crossing won't be too rough! The wind is getting up here too today!

The temp was 18 on Friday, 25 yesterday, but not quite so warm today. Clive has been swimming in the sea twice and hopes for another dip today. Chatting to some English people this morning who say it is raining in the Picos!

See you all tomorrow.
