Biarritz & Searching for the Sun

We left Capbreton and headed for Bayonne to find a store that would hopefully be able to help us sort out our wifi as our gadget is not charging and it could be that we need a new charging cable (as I may have packed the wrong one!) or a new battery.   We found the correct store and after a brief discussion and a test of our wifi, it does actually work OK and it could just be that we needed a good boost of mains electricity to get it going again!

We decided to leave a tour of Bayonne old town for another time and continued on our journey to Biarritz.  We parked close to the Grande Plage and walked around the headlands of Biarritz before heading into the town for a coffee and a treat of some very expensive chocolates €5 for 4 chocolates but they were worth it.  The beaches are amazing and the surf makes Biarritz a magnet for surfers.  It has a very upmarket feel to it and an enjoyable place to visit.

We moved on for a lunch stop at St Jean de Luz, a quintessential Basque seaside town, with narrow streets and a fishing port.  We also noticed an Aire that looked a good place to stay for another time.

Moving on from St Jean de Luz, we crossed the border into Spain at Irun and not long after we found the sun!  We continued along the base of the Pyrenees and have arrived at Camping Ezcaba just outside Pamplona.

We will cycle into Pamplona tomorrow and hope the sun will still be shining!

    Hurray you got some sun at last! Thank goodness you got your wifi sorted – I was worried the blog might come to an abrupt end and miss out on your adventures.
