... we had a great coastal walk, in search of la Vierge sur le rocher. We stopped at a café for hot drinks and directions. In addition to the directions, the owners offered us crêpes to share-we got to try their caramel, sugar, nutella and chocolate crêpes. Sweet! :) We had dinner on the way back to the hotel.

I said that I couldn't ...
... ordering Txakoli (local cloudy white wine), Sidra (cider) and bar hopping to eat different pintxos. Our favourite meal, however has been a hilarious seafood bar La Mejillonera that only sells mussels, calamari, patas bravas (spicy potatoes) and sangria. And a side serving of baguette of course.
