Got up a bit early so I had time to shower and eat a nice breakfast before tearing down the tent and getting ready to leave. This was a nice campground – the only sound at night was the creek below me.
We got on the road before 10:00 and ended up going all the way back to Burgos before getting on the motorway north/northeast.
We stopped in a small town for a coffee, than back on the motorway to the coast at San Sebastian. Since we were on the toll-highway we didn’t actually go thru any of the towns or cities, which saved a lot of time.
Crossed the (non-existent) border from Spain into France just past Irun, then skirted St. Jean de Luz and Biarritz. The area around Bordeaux was, as usual, a bit of a bottleneck, but not as bad as the way south had been a couple of weeks ago.
Arrived back ‘home’ to Mansle just before 6:00 and threw a frozen lasagna in the oven before walking down to the bar for a quick glass. Unfortunately they’re closed for the week for a short vacation – the nerve!
Headed back to the house for dinner and an early evening. I quite like camping and seeing different places every few days, but it is very nice to sleep in an actual bed, and have a bathroom less than 200 metres away if needed in the middle of the night – ha ha.
