Martine drove us through the Pyrenées into Spain, this morning. We explored San Sebastián and then had tapas for lunch. It was fun to try out our Spanish. We found a great ice cream shop and also bought some souvenirs. From there, we went back into France and spent some time in Saint Jean de Luz.

We had a very brief stopover in Bilbao before hightailing it after a run in with the law (took a bus lane through the city which the local constabulary weren't too pleased about....well one cop wasnt too pleased his mate in the passenger seat was laughing and joking.....good cop / bad cop!?!?).
