Yesterday we took a bus ride to the northern part of the island - according to our tourist guide the must do part of the island if you have only one day. The bus ride to Vallehermosa was amazing, once again. This part of the island is the fertile part, where they grow their crops, but Vallehermosa itself was not worth a long visit, and having had lunch we caught the next bus back! We thought we were buying Spanish Omelettes for lunch, what we got was a Spanish Omelette in a toasted sandwich.
Sarah had time in the afternoon to do some baking, so we have wholemeal bread and cake for the next part of our trip, and Phil continued trying to get the long range radio to talk to the computer so we can use it for emails.
In the evening we went out on the town for a meal, and experienced San Sebastian on a Saturday night. There was a bouncy castle and other games for the children on the town square (and the noise was incredible). Along the main street with restaurants and cafes there was lots of music, and as the evening progressed just about the whole population of the town must have promenaded along the street, stopping to chat and admire each others children. When we got back to the square there was more live music - this time a trio playing Jazz, and like the string quartet the other evening the standard of playing was really good. We stood and watched for a while and could hear them even when we were back on the boat.
We are now just about ready to leave San Sebastian, and will probably have a night at anchor on the western side of the island before moving on.
