CapBreton to Zarautz…Estamos en Espana.

We have had some blogging gremlins….hopefully this post will appear, if a bit late..if so thanks to Chris…technical back up from Wales.

Last night in CapBreton

On Friday we drove to Zarautz, which is a small town in Northern Spain, just over the border, on the coast. This is the view from the campsite, showing Zarautz in a bay extending to our East.
The site was quite busy, full of surfers here for the weekend and some travellers like us, stopping en route South. It is an ideal site for dogs, with a large open field adjacent. Cycling probably not so good unless you are super fit. It is very hilly and we didn’t venture out on les velos. The site staff are friendly and helpful.

We arrived in time for the heavens to open.

When the rain stopped we walked down the hill to an old iron ore processing facility…built at the end of the nineteenth century to export iron ore.

Today we walked to Zarautz old town, past another surf beach. This is the Zarautz surf lacrosse team coach.

Zarautz is a Basque stronghold, by the look of the posters and graffiti.

We decided to head South, not West, in view of the poor forecast for Finisterre, and left on Sunday morning en route to Burgos, a cathedral town about 150 miles away.
