By the riverside on our approach to the Vizcaya Transporter Bridge I spotted this beauty:-

This port/marina building is also in the deco/moderne style. Spot two ships’ funnels behind it:-

Reverse view looking back to Getxo. Those “English” buildings are prominent to the upper left. The main part of Getxo itself is off to the right:-

There was another Fred. Olsen line ship docked at the same time as ours, the Boudicca. Both are seen here from the pier approach:-
