Awaycation Summer 2024 - Day 5

After two nights at Camping Playa del Regatón we were going to embark on a few days exploring the mountains.

Today's loop would take us in and out of the Basque country and Cantabria and a little excursion into Castille Leon.

The first stop was at Lidl. It's Saturday and shops will most likely be closed tomorrow, so we needed to get a few days worth of food in stock.

That done it was down the N629 towards Ramales before striking off left into the Basque area and a first stop at Pozalagua Caves. The 6 Kms up from the main road was okay apart from the one way around a building in a village on the way. Claire worried in case me met some thing coming the other way...

We parked in a bus space. Yes. Buses get up there!

We had a coffee. It was very warm, around 23 °C so rather than leave Reggie in the van we had a coffee and a look around the mirador.

I took some photos on my phone...

Then we off to complete the rest of the loop. Ohrex made some odd decisions. One of them we took!

In the end we were looking for a "cheeky park up" for lunch. Nothing showed up! One appeared but we weren't that far from the campsite. That's when with 18kms to go we went left and found the new route was 35! We turned round and switched off the Ohrex. Off and on allegedly fixes things. It didn't. I deleted the route and reset with one destination. The campsite. Suddenly all was well.

In Ramales we followed both Google on Claire's phone and Ohrex. We seemed to be on a single track road. No signage and suddenly there it was. I went past as the entry was facing the opposite direction!!!

Once checked in the guy led us to spaces. All grass. All sloping. We ended up across two spaces heading downhill. Did I say it was raining?

The site has a restaurant, and a lounge which is dog friendly. The loos etc are good.

It's the slope... Dinner eaten in despite a €19 three course menu.
