    hi, if she heads towards torrelavega.there is a big shell garage with lots of parking .its used by truck drivers and campers .its about half way to torrelavaga . its safe .use it alot. possibly there could be some open along the coast but i doubt it . loads of free parking once you get out of santander . sometimes park on industrial estates heading towardsthe airport,thats the other way. cheers alan.
    i dont use sites so not upto scratch.

    hi theresa. i am not the best sailor at anytime. i never have a cabin ,never use the reclining seats .i find it better to find some seats close to cafe /toilets and sit quiet .if neccasary sleep on the floor. dont like moving about or being in a cabin feels like a prison.
    but the next day you are there hooray. sometimes sleep in restaurant settees . best if there are no kennals for dog ,then walk dog last thing then go to bed in van. when they open up for others to walk theirs get out and nobody realises.
    see you on sunday i,ll be with a camper a white one.ha ha
    cheers alan.
