We drove through the Cantabria mountain range, driving past a 2417m mountain, albeit mostly disguised by fog. We did though enjoy amazing views through the Swiss/Scottish like terrain. It did get a big scary descending down 17% slopes with wet roads. Especially with Bigwig's slippery tires. But alas we got to see snow up close for the first time since we were in Norway.

We got to the coast and got to see ocean again, the drizzle had let up a while and we began to explore our next town Luanco. Including a free maritime museum! The museum had an amazing collection of model ships throughout the ages, and a whole bunch of other sea related coolness.

After spending the night on the beach we drove up onto the peninsula to Penas where there was another maritime museum built around a light-house. This one concentrated more on the lifestyle of the people in this stormy sea dependant place. There was this video of some guys cutting the goose barnacles off the crashing rocks at the base of the cliffs. So flipping dangerous! But apparently a bunch of barnacles for dinner is well worth it…
