Half way along Spain’s North coast is the port of Santander. Famous for its beaches and it’s bank, it’s an important spot along the Camino del Norte. I cycled into town as my Brittany ferries flagship arrived. Just time to visit the cathedral, and have a brother Martin moment with the stone I’d brought with me from his home in Aberdeen.
It’s been in my bag for two months and travelled all this way with me. I wondered whether to leave it on a Camino way marker or skim it across the water….. I went into the cathedral to consider my options. And then it came to me… Why not do both?
