Very sad to say goodbye to Bayonne , Anglet and Biarritz.
We both thought they were the most friendly places we had ever been. Happy smiley helpful people everywhere.
So we thought Basque Spain should be OK...
After a 35 mile lumpy trip this afternoon we arrived at our first Spanish port of Getaria.
Nice little deep harbour, supposedly 16 visitors spaces.
"No,senor, we are full, you have to leave...."
" But there are only two yachts on the reception pontoon and we can tie alongside them..."
"No , we are full, you must leave..." This had happened to us once before in Southern Spain but we thought it would be different here...
I won't write down what we said, but it followed on from the Catherine Tate sketch..." the dirty evil .......... etc"
Never mind..we went out and anchored in the bay, had a swim and a g and t, blagged onto their wifi and here I am writing away.
It can only get better or can it?
