Basque coast holiday


After a very busy couple of months, we found we had a few days off last week, so treated ourselves to a short break to the Basque coast. 
We dug out our tent and camping equipment which last saw the light of day in New Zealand in 2010 and booked in at a small family site just inland from St Jean de Luz which was clean and efficiently run. We soon slipped into the camping routine again. The positive side being breakfast outside the tent - the negative trooping off to the wash-block at bedtime armed with toothbrush and loo roll!

We spent 3 days of non-stop sightseeing - St Jean de Luz and the coast-line north and south, Spain and the city of San Sebastian, the very picturesque Basque villages, the ever present mountains, Biarritz and Capbreton. August is very high season so there were tourists everywhere, but a nice atmosphere and very warm weather, if a bit hazy at times.
