I practically swooned the first time I ate Percebes at a restaurant outside Guernica in 1988. My host was so pleased I enjoyed them. I closed my eyes and felt at one with the ocean from which they came.
It was not recommended to walk the Napoleon on that day. Forecasted heavy winds and rain. But it was an amazing walk to Roncesvalles. Clouds dashing over the Pyrenees, little to no rain, some sun and an experience I will not forget in my life.
