The drive to Zarautz, not far west from San Sebastian, took us about 2 hours including our brush with the law. We were going to stay in the camping ground near the beach, one of OJ's favourites that he has been to before, but it had not yet opened for the summer
The next morning we went out for a drive along the coast road which hugs the cliff edge just above the Atlantic Ocean, at times cutting straight through the side of the rock face itself. The road winds uphill after the village where the views look out over the entire coastline.
The relaxing day took an abrupt turn when our friends from Sydney, Glen and Taryn turned up. As it was Glen's birthday the following day we had to go and celebrate. We started in the beachfront bars, quite a few of them actually, where we enjoyed a range of different European beers, then headed into the town centre where the evening kicked on. Beers, tequila, and seafood tapas, kept us going as we cruised from bar to bar. We ended up back at Glen and Taryn's room which slept 4, so Mandy and I stayed over, so we escaped the tent and air bed for a night and got to have a shower without thongs.
A fairly slow start the next day, in fact the entire day ended up a slow one for us. Glen and Taryn left about lunchtime so we spent the rest of the day lazing around the campsite, and played some Frisbee as well. Tomorrow it's time to head of again...
