Orio to Haro

The weather has just got better and better and so today (30th September) we walked into Orio and caught the tiny little train to San Sebastian. What a beautiful city is San Sebastian. It has a setting for a major city probably unequalled in Europe. Think Lulworth Cove on a serious lump of acid. We did the touristy thing of climbing up the hill with Jesus atop, for the views, eat Pinxtos in the old town and stroll round the elegant Boulevards. Finally looked after some poor woman who fell over until the Ambulance arrived. Must have been something to do with Jesus visit. Here are some pics so you can judge for yourselves.100714_1435_SanSebastia5.jpg 100714_1441_SanSebastia2.jpg 100714_1435_SanSebastia3.jpg 100714_1435_SanSebastia2.jpg

Also Spotted some Graffiti which we had to agree with

The night after these were taken we had a tremendous storm meaning I get a kick in the shins and am sent out to resuce Awning, flags and furniture sometime in the middle of the night. Luckily everything survived OK.

The next day we got up and apcked before driving to the Capital of the Rioja region, Haro. The journey goes through the heart of Basque country which is spectaclular. A great drive recommended to all.
