San Jean de Luz03:28
We woke on a gloriously sunny day and decided to head to San Jean de Luz. Ian and I hopped on a bus and stopped in the nearby village to find that we had an hour wait for the connecting bus so we strolled over to the beach; picking up a coffee and croissant on the way and had breakfast on the beach whilst waiting....I've had worse waits!
When it was almost time, we walked back to the bus stop and caught our second bus all the way to San Jean de Luz. Everyone must have had the same idea because when we pulled into the town center almost the whole bus got off. Most people headed straight for the beach but we chose to go and explore the town center first and found that it was market day!
We walked around the outdoor market stalls and also went inside to explore all the goodies!
Vibrant colours and smells of fresh fruits and homemade dishes competed for our attention, we grabbed some fruit to munch as we walked then headed over to the cheese counter.
We each chose a quiche for lunch, followed by a creme caramel.
...then headed to the beach to eat it ^.^
The beach was beautiful, the sun beat down but the accompanying breeze and cooling sea made it idyllic.
After a few swims, sunbathing, reading and a little snooze, we headed back into the town, through streets drenched in the suns harsh glow, in search of ice cream! I chose Hazlenut flavour which was deliciously decadent and Ian went for a passion fruit sorbet which I admit, I was very jealous of!
