The critics loved the picture. The Hollywood moguls are demanding a sequel. Re-sign up one star; get a new co-star. Put in some background and add some action. Play with the title.
I think, over the years (since 2012) there have been alterations to the structures there. I've seen photos and references on the forum since then that don't seem to show the larger barn part.Wow, I never realized it was so big! I must not have looked back after finishing the watermelon he gave me when I looked back.
Thanks for posting the pic of such a gorgeous place, Chris.best decision ever
Not if you keep giving us gorgeous photos like that, it doesn't!so if we comment on someone else's pictures it counts against us?
In 2017, four of the Baztan Five met up in Irun-Hendaye and spent the first day together walking from there up towards Bayonne along the Voie Littoral. By about here, I imagine they were getting tired of me blathering on and on about how amazing the rock formations were. Looking back towards Irun from somewhere before
St. Jean de Luz.
We sadly missed it Laurie, what an amazing coastline! It actually started to pour rain later in the morning the day we walked from Zarautz to Deba. The entrance to Deba was quite treacherous on the cobbles going down to the town. We were pleased to see the elevators!! Thank you for your photo.I was with you and I don’t remember any blathering. But I do remember being amazed, too. BTW, there is a stretch on the Norte, the Ruta del Flysch, which has similar amazing rock formations. Well, it’s not exactly on the Norte, it’s about two kms away from the camino, on the coast between Zumaia and Deba. Which means that most people sadly miss it!
Those are world famous rocks. ☺Ruta del Flysch
I remember the first time I walked the Norte, in Villaviciosa, we met an American Geology professor who had just finished taking a bunch of undergraduates to somewhere in the UK and was now having his own geology tour in Spain. I asked him why he didn’t just bring the undergraduates to Spain and he told me that this geology was way too complicated for his undergraduates. It is just gorgeous, but apparently very complex.Those are world famous rocks. ☺
Seriously. If you want to poke your finger in the layer of stuff left after the asteroid did in the dinos (the 'K-T boundary') you can do it there - and there is more!
It's part of the Basque Coast Geopark:
"[Zumaia] has two beaches (Itzurun and Santiago), which are of interest to geologists because they are situated among the longest set of continuous rock strata in the world. Known locally as the "flysch" they date from the mid-cretaceous period to the present, a time period of over 100 million years. The K-T boundary is present at the Itzurun beach, and fossils can be found, notably of ammonites. The strata stretches along a distance of about 8 km, between the towns/beaches of Deba and Getaria, with Zumaia lying in the middle."

Somewhere in my files I have a geological map the Pais Vasco...it is a doozie. Yeah - 'complex' is definitely the right desription.It is just gorgeous, but apparently very complex.
Thank you for posting this fascinating information about the flysch coastline. I had not realised how spectacular the outcrops actually are. The Norte is definitely going on my bucket list.Those are world famous rocks.
And no graffiti!The gorgeous wooden boards with the yellow flecha on the Camino Vasco Interior.
We had to do the same with our laundry in our accommodation, Pension Kaixo, in San Sebastian in 2018 on the Camino del Norte. It was over the light well and quite high up of the ground. Unfortunately, we didn't take any photos! Luckily nothing fell off!
It was such an efficient system for drying the sheets - especially as it was a chilly rainy day! There was a fire in the wood stove in the room below so heat was rising. There was something so aesthetically pleasing about it!We had to do the same with our laundry in our accommodation, Pension Kaixo, in San Sebastian in 2018 on the Camino del Norte. It was over the light well and quite high up of the ground. Unfortunately, we didn't take any photos! Luckily nothing fell off!
Nope! The 2nd one clearly shows the whole sweep of coast between Hendaye and St Jean de Luz. Lovely.Hope we haven't posted these before!
Ahhh, that day...Tuesday in Monasterio de Rodilla! (Word to the wise - absolutely everything is closed, including the albergue.)There was a café open.
