Left Irun in the morning mist which quickly turned into a light rain that lasted all morning.
Got up on the ridge line and caught first glimpse of ocean.
The area reminds me a lot of Pacific NW. Weather is fairly similar as is some of the coastal terrain.
Descended down into small town of Pasajes de San Juan. By this time I was pretty wet and very cold. Had fish & chips for lunch. Literally stuck my fingers in bowl to warm them up.
Had to take a shot ferry ride across the river.
The rain had pretty much stopped by then which, along with the views, made the ascent and descent into San Sebastián quite fun.
Toto, we’re not on the AT anymore.
I could post dozens more great coastal pics from this afternoon but I have to cut down or file gets too large to send! This is third time I’ve typed all this! Hope you appreciate my dedication!!
San Sebastián is a beautiful city. To me, a small (population 200K) version of Barcelona.
Everybody’s gone surfin’
If you can’t tell, the afternoon vistas more than made up for the cold and wet morning.
Hope you enjoy the Camino del Norte as much as I am.
Happy trails and buen Camino!
