NOW I read that it always rains all the time in north Spain. Should have read the literature before I guess. Ferry from Porthmouth to Bilbao was much cleaner and smarter than I expected. Now in Bilbao in a camping site that is actually closed except for the restaurant which is rather good. Not sure why they let us book? We are the only ones here and parked in the restaurant carpark. Which makes it handy for visiting. Been sitting here since 5 o'clock ...

art? I did enjoy the maze made of clear plastic that had some mirrors in it. It

inside and get lost and bump into clear walls. Eventually, I got to the middle,
where there was a table with a telephone on it. It was supposed to ring once I
got there but it never did. In the hall, there was a "wishing tree," and a

Fine Wine and Fine (But Weird) Art

Today, the winery is a full complex that dubs itself "The City of Wine" and is also distinguished by its hallmark building, a Frank Gehry design whose wine-colored "ribbons" of steel cascade down its limestone sides.
