Where I stayed
Hostal Del La Mar
During the day, Miguel kept us posted on the progress of the bikes. They were supposed to be serviced and have 2 new tyres each by 6pm this day. In his usual helpful style, Miguel came to pick us up at 5:30pm, drove us to the ProMoto Service Centre, and escorted us back to the Bidasoa Hotel with the bikes, all beautifully cleaned, polished and serviced, and with the new treads. Miguel stayed to have a drink with us and showed us some places to go, on Google Earth on his computer. He also showed us photos of his lovely children, Fran, Andres and Vicente.
It was a sad moment when we had to say goodbye to Miguel, but with a little bit of luck, he will come to visit us in Australia.
By 7:15am, we were packed, on our bikes and riding down the Hotel driveway
We were looking forward to catching up with Lou and Lynn again at La Serena, but as luck would have it, we four all fueled up at the same service station, Lou and Lynn were there slightly ahead of us. We rode into La Serena together. Lou had programmed Hostal Del Mar Cabins into his Zumo, and it lead us straight to them. Luckily, someone else had not paid their deposit for a cabin, so we were able to take the 2 cabins available.
There was a little patio in the back of the cabins, so over coffee we chatted excitedly about our adventures apart for the past seven days. Lou had also serviced his and Lynn's bikes, and bought himself a new camera.
We had dinner on the beach in a restaurant which was crowded with memorabilia of bygone eras, mainly records, and music paraphernalia. The food wasn’t crash hot, but the children playing on the Esplanade were entertaining. Lou ventured in for a swim.
Des and I travelled 478 km this day.
