tuesday: quiet night at the aire, went for a wander into town after tea....
what a lovely place, with a gorgeous beach, purportedly one of the best in the basque region, and a
small island which was reached by a narrow spit of sand at low tide.
everywhere was deserted, so after we'd walked around the harbour/marina, past a church or two, and
around the narrow backstreets, it was back to the van, via a 24 hour kiosk we found, before the mossie's
really got their teeth into us!!
we slept well, had our brekkie, packed up, usual thing, then off.
no shopping needed, so straight to the campsite about an hour's journey. its not an acsi one as there was
nothing really near to the city.
we had a lovely drive through the basque countryside, through some beautiful seaside towns and then
an amazing climb up to the site.
arrived at a v. nice place, camping igueldo, but its super expensive! €35 approx. a night!
not sure if we'll stay one night or two yet, depends on whether we decide to visit san sebastian or not....
its much better weather though, warm sunshine.
we're parked up, plugged in and are just going to have our lunch outside....then chilling for the rest of the
day....making a plan for here + researching aires for return into france in the next few days.
wednesday: milled and chilled yesterday aft.
the site got busy, which was surprising (expensive), and not surprising (nowhere else to go!), at the same
time, quite a few brits too.
the site's a good one, v. plush loos etc., little shop, cafe/restaurant and a great view!
there were noisy workmen doing noisy things on the terrace just above us, but generally it was nice here, so
we've decided to stay another day - and visit san sebastian - as LP do recommend it.
it was quiet, apart from frogs, a wierd barking noise (maybe foxes?) and a strange bird! so we slept well after
our eve of internetting (work for p, research for c), and half a dvd.
p's gone for a short run this am, then its brekkie, get ready and off on the bus.
won't take long as we're only 5km away from the city here.
supposed to be good weather, sunny, but its cloudy so far, at least its not cold - or wet - though! (small
mercy's and all that!).
