Reading time: 1 minute...

Near the foothills of the Pyrenees. St Jean de Luz is the principle centre of the French Basque country. Another beautiful place, completely unspoilt and lots of nice expensive looking shops and a wonderful beach. We also took a short train ride to Biarritz, which was also brimming with beautiful beaches and shops.

We were disappointed it was only 82 degrees today, and there was a spot of rain in the air, but enjoyed the change!

Local specialities in St Jean de Luz include macaroons and sheepskin vests. One of those is going to be essential today!

Back to the ship now for a well deserved rest and afternoon tea and nibbles. We’re at sea all day tomorrow and then off to La Coruna, northern Spain…
