San Sebastian

August 24, 2012

San Sebastian is a just a short drive south of Biarritz so we decided to take our trusty Opel Astra rental car and our Garmin GPS and go check out Spain!

The drive only took about an hour from Biarrtiz. There are no border guards or customs to deal with (but there were of course a couple of toll roads!)

La Concha Beach is the most central and most famous in San Sebastian. It's right in the middle of the city - so it's as crowded as it is beautiful!

Another one-handed photo op!

We brought all the fixin's for one of our trademark picnic lunches at the beach! (Fruit, brie cheese, cherry tomatoes, tapenade, dry sausage, baguette and cold beer)

Here's Lauren jumping off the diving board on a popular floating platform.

After another relaxing day at the beach, we joined the crowds and walked through the nearby old town shops.

Pinxtos are the local specialty. The bar offers up a great selection of tapas style snacks and you just take what you like!

Our day in Spain was relaxing and beautiful.  It was also a reminder of our less-than-adequate Spanish skills!
