Parasols and Pintxos

Iain, Breezy’s Father, and Jo came to spend 3 nights with us as part of their Southern Europe tour. Iain had not been over here last year and so there were some considerable changes. An indoor shower definitely met with approval as did the flowers and the sedum roof. Jo explored the valley and helped us find some wild mushrooms. Naturally, we had bought some nice wines and planned some special fodder. Unfortunately we have no control over the weather however the sun shone on the last day providing fantastic views of the mountains. We also had a visit to the Museo des Colporteur locally which was fascinating.

The next 3 nights we all headed to San Sebastian for more food and wine with some walking and culture thrown in. Highlights were a pintxos tour and a restaurant recommended by Peter and Alison in the village.

On the way back we called in with a great skiing mate Mat who was staying with his Aunt Rosie.
