San Sebastian, Spain

Recently, in a futile effort to escape from what was an extended rainy spell in Toulouse, we headed to San Sebastian, a foody city on the Atlantic coast of Spain.

I say ‘futile’ because the closer we got to the city, the harder it rained. Still, it was nice to get away and have some, indeed, wonderful food. And with Bilbao only an hour away, we went to visit the Guggenheim Museum.

Like I said, a futile attempt to escape the rain. At least on the first day.

Don Quixote and Sancho Panza. Probably looking for drier climes too.

Town hall…at night (for you Sponge Bob fans).

Be it ever so humble, this is what we called home for the weekend: the Hotel Londres, grand dame of the beach.

Based on our start, who’d a-thunk I’d need shades?

Note: We learned from a restaurateur that San Sebastian has 200 days with rain per year. I really need to do better research.
