Pechon (Cantabria) Sunday 1st August


Another wild goose chase today.  We started off at 8.45 am from Getaria heading for the ‘Area de Servicios del Lago del

Beach at Pechon

Acebo’ in the Parque de la Naturaleza de Cabárceno, but again, when we got there, we were deeply disappointed to find that the entry fee was 20 Euros per adult!  We quickly made a u-turn and after one more unlucky attempt, we ended up here, at the ‘Las Arenas’ campsite, just a few kms west of San Vicente de la Barquera.  It’s a huge campsite on serveral levels leading down to the beach, where we have already been for a walk and a swim (in Adonis’s case).  It has the usual features of this area of rocks and caves and interesting walks around, perfect for Bramble.  One drawback at the campsite is that the electric hook-up connexion box is too narrow for our lumpy cable end and cannot buy adaptor until 5 pm and we’ve been here since 1.30 pm, so we’ve been running on gas instead.  We’ll try again later.

Another little disappointment for Pepo was that wifi wasn’t working and the IT bloke is not coming until tomorrow, being Sunday today, but we’re only staying here one night as this pitch is costing us 37 Euros a day!  By far the most expensive and disappointing campsite yet: happy to charge top premiums when not all the services are available: despicable and will not come here again.

Well, we’ve just been to supermarket to buy ‘alargador’ (extension lead) but they are out of stock.  What a poor show!Hopefully they won’t charge us for electricity.

Travelling is my passion. Ever since I was a young girl I've been wanting to see the world. I studied languages to make this dream possible and I love meeting people from different cultures and countries. Having a motorhome since 2010 has made this possible and I hope I'll be able to retire travelling in one.
