Saturday 17th November. We set off early (ish) from the Hendaye aire and had breakfast and a walk on this cliff top about 5 miles up the road. It is a leisurely drive of about 30 miles then, through Biarritz, Bayonne and Anglet to the aire at Capbreton. We avoided the peage.
The Capbreton aire had its electricity disconnected, and water turned off, on November 15th so you have to make do on battery power. Anyone know when it all opens up again?

We walked along the plage to Capbreton, and met Elsa and Jean-Luc, a delightful couple from the Cote d’Azur, who had driven the 10 hour round trip journey to bring their son to surf school here. They have a company servicing superyachts in Cannes…we have the contact details if anyone needs their diesel centrifuged. (Trix….might this help Dyl with his little difficulties?)

After a slap up 3 course plat de jour at a restaurant overlooking the harbour, we set off for a bike ride. Capbreton has a bike track extending round the harbour and north to Hossegor.

Farewell dinner for Bob and Mirv. They are staying in the fleshpots of Capbreton for a day or two longer.
