Could hear rain in the night but only copped a couple of light bits of rain today, more than a drizzle but defo not a shower. Somehow the heating got turned on in the night, and while not highly warm it was better than the bone chill of last night. It meant my face washer was not wringing wet to stuff in my pack but sadly Hedleys shoes which weren't near the heater bombed out - not that it mattered, they were soon soaked again in the wet grass on the goat track.
... limited choices and VERY average.
We headed out the door on our usual 6:15 under a light shower that lasted for about an hour - was very dark - still on the dirt road - lots of potholes to dodge full of water and numerous water challenges to negotiate - fun at best of time but in the dark under torchlight adds its own challenges.

Couldn't see what because they'd fenced us out :( But whatever, while it's now state property, ...
... small lake. On the second day we promenade along the cliffs on the "Grande Corniche de Basque". - The route is undulating, 4 miles to the south then return to the start. Both Monsieur et Madame are enthusiastic, there must be a cozy little bar at the end. "Fermé pour l'hiver" - well wouldn't you believe it!! 19c, the suns out and with it lots of punters - where is the French entrepreneurial spirit?
