Thursday 24th September Lat 43.408303 Long -1.637936

We arrived here Monday and have decided to stay here for possibly as long as a fortnight. We are on a site which is very pleasant indeed and we can see the sea from inside our motor home. Saint- Jean-de-Luz.is ideally suited for our prolonged stay. We have already walked some of the coastal paths which give us spectacular views of the Cote Basque. The Pyrenees Mountains are making a wonderful back drop, however the weather has changed and now there is cloud cover and the temperature has dropped to around 21 to 22 degrees in the daytime. The forecast is for the temperatures to climb again through to the weekend.
We will take the bus to Bearritz one day and although it is no longer the mecca for the rich as it once was it apparently is still a very worthwhile place to visit, with lots of history and old buildings to see. We will wait for a really clear day then we will travel 15 kilometres go to La Rhune where there is a train that winds its way up one of the mountains and the views at the top are supposed to be stunning. This is why it has to be a very cloudless day to make it worthwhile. Bayonne is another place we will visit which is a warren of medieval streets and because there is a street dedicated to chocolate there and Elaine has said she is not going to miss that for anything.
Here we have met up with Clive and Ruth from Devon and we were forced to sample the red wines they had bought on their travels. We also have spoken to the English couple who proudly have a full sized, stuffed sheep dog puppy which they sit in front of their motor home. He told us that this thing has been taken on every holiday all over Europe. What is that man doing to the reputation of the English considering that there are vans here from all over from Finland, Austria, Italy and the rest. The only saving grace is that his “dead dog” doesn’t bark which cannot be said about the dogs that are carried about by our French friends.

This is all about our year long meander around Europe in our motor home. It is a way of passing on what is happening, where we are and thoughts on what we have seen or done. Please comment as it is, firstly, nice to know this stuff is being read, and also tell me if there are other things you would like to hear about.
