Riding Day 6 (May 28) Pamplona → Bilbao


Hardworking woman at Taberna Panaderia just steps away from our AirBnB.

Wet morning mist again, but this was to be the last of our wet riding.

Greens as spectacular as the French side of they Pyrenees.

On Carretera del Uremea crossing the Río Urumea river.

See the family of goats near the building?

We've reached the beach at Donostia-San Sebastian a resort town on the Bay of Biscay in Basque Country.

The makings of an exemplary FUZ-moto lunch!

Parque de Atracciones Monte Igueldo

This is an amusement park on a hill top with one of the best views in the world. Interesting conversion of an ancient castle.

Chris is dreaming of riding bumper cars.

Jerry looks like he'd have fun too.

Oops, road closed for construction. We're going to have to go around and miss some of the coast route. No worries, there's plenty to keep us busy.

Seriously. Does this look like the kind of detour a FUZ-moto rider would complain about?

Back across this bridge across the Deba River

Castillo De Arteaga This would be a very nice place to stay someday, not terribly expensive. Super restoration.

This guy invited us to head upstairs to check out the view

Gaztelugatxeko Doniene is a . This islet is featured in Game of Thrones.

This picture is from Olivier's recent visit to the north coast of Spain with his family.

This was a local specialty cod dish enthusiastically recommended by our AirBnB host. It was interesting and expensive. I'd happily settle for more mundane local food.

Cool lamps

Super cool subway entrances

Plaza Moyúa is a historical, oval shaped public square / roundabout.
