Day 211 – Friday 5th October 2018
A cracking morning in Yvrac. Travelled to Moliets-Plage just north of Biarritz. It was so hot when we arrived at Camping Le Saint Martin we had to put the aircon on; fabulous 😀
Day 212 – Saturday 6th October 2018
Day 213 – Sunday 7th October 2018

Day 214 – Monday 8th October 2018
A dry morning and we made the short journey to Biarritz. A bit of a pulaver getting onto an aire but we were on by lunchtime and we motored into town for a nose about.
Day 215 – Tuesday 9th October 2018

Day 217 – Thursday 11th October 2018
A breezy morning but not as bad as last night when Julie was worried the van would be blown down a hill. We set off for Santander. No mountain roads today, all toll free motorways, they were twisty enough.
It has to be said Santander is not a tourist hotspot.
