Sunday, July 11 – Transit Day: Bus from Sare to St. Jean de Luz – Walked 3 kms.


Early afternoon bus of maybe 12 kms. to St. Jean de Luz. We were the only riders.

Arrived and found excellent casual outside resto (short for restaurant) at classic marche (market) in town. Walked to serviceable hotel in town and then walked along beach and port. Signs of en saison (high season) tourist activity. Beach and boardwalk full and much ice cream was being consumed.

In evening found a resto that had a ecran (screen) to watch the final World Football match between Spain and Pays Bas. Spain was victorious and here we were only a short distance from the border. Some celebration in town but not very much.

Our walking stage is really over as we decided to stay three nights at the hotel in Chinon in the Loire Valley rather than walk starting from Erigne to Saumur to Chinon. (I guess we were ready to stop and also we felt the flat Loire area would not be as interesting.)
