    it is satander Gailseal.



    when you take your topimage of those 2,you wil see a flat,the same flat is in a red circle.
    when you go to google earth and go to the coordinates?? what can be seen on my google image and klick on the camera that have a white circle you see the flat from streetvieuw.

    the building with the bleu circle can be seen when you go to the camera with the green circle.

    so now you know where it was you can find out for your hotelroom

    good hunting
    best regards Thijs

      Thanks, I hadn't thought of looking there.

      I really don't know why we were there- had we arrived late and needed somewhere to stay before driving south? were we supposed to be sailing early the next day after driving north? Why Santander rather than Bilbao?

      We kept scrapbooks and they are hopefully still in the family home- perhaps they will hold some answers.

        the monument on the top pic is still there so the hotel most stand in line to the flat.
        on google 2 images runs through eachother (the hotel is standing on the road)
        so that is probally a new one. you can find it by the roundabout.
        best regards Thijs

          another of the photos proves it, the building is so clearly visible on the satellite image.


          The Hotel Bahia doesn't sound familiar but must have been called that when we stayed.

          Thanks for helping to solve this puzzle

              Here is another old ship photo which have been hidden away in an old shoe box: the Enchanted Isle of Commodore Cruise Line which later went bankrupt.

              I believe the image was taken in 1991 in Cabo San Lucas if my memory serves me correctly:

                            Looks like Italians has a history of "Close encounter" stunts.
