Hola from San Sebastián (Basque region of Spain)

Slept well last night after a couple of glasses of red, thank you Armand!

Had a nice ride through hectares and hectares of grape vines on the way to St Emillion. From my "expert" eye next year's vintage is going to be a classic

After some nice windy roads found I ended up on the motorway with the GPS telling me 185 km to the next turn :-(

I detoured into Biaritz to see where the beautiful people go to play. Luckily, or unluckily, not the nicest of days for them to be out. It is a nice town though.

Finding where my bnb was in San Sebastián was a bit of a mission. Apologies to those people I held up at the lights, yes I do accept I was in the wrong lane and that you had a green light but my light was still red so I couldn't move (I also missed the turn off to San Sebastián, I had to go an extra 6 kms)

I walked into town and decided to treat myself with a rum and coke. That did cause a few problems when I told the bar man I wanted them both in the SAME glass. Man could he pour the rum, I was afraid there would be no room for the coke. After drinking it I was glad I walked there and didn't need to ride home

Finally as this is a bike site, a couple if pics of bikes I saw in town.

A Gas Gas super motard, check out the slick rear tyre, how much fun would that be in the wet?

Finally a couple of Africa Twins, I went past three coming into town so not sure why so many of them are here?

A day off the bike tomorrow, time to do some chores and get some exercise.
