Santander

Third port of the trip - Santander, home of the famous bank.
We docked at the port and caught a shuttle bus to the port gates and town centre.
The town has some interesting new modern buildings and some fantastic belle epoque houses that look like fairy tale palaces, but unforgiveably I haven't taken any photos of them!
We walked along the Promenade past a sculpture of the boys who used to dive for pennies that were thrown by rather cruel sounding tourists, although perhaps it was all good fun. 
We walked around to the beautiful El Sardinero District and I enjoyed my third paddle of the holiday, but the water is definitely not getting any warmer.
Finally we walked back through the town and stopped to look in an estate agents window, just to be nosy.
