The other day I left off with the girls having gone shopping and the boys hiking. We had made the better choice as they ended up hiking 17 km. in very hot humid weather with very steep inclines and declines. We, on the other hand, experienced the city, its people and culture. San Sebastian is an amazingly beautiful city, as well as vibrant and active.
After a short walk through town we crossed the bridge, followed the path along the river then began our hike upwards out of town and into beautiful pastoral scenery once again; we were heading into Getaria. Situated on the Bay of Biscay, Getaria is an old town with a mountain that is an islet, a port, beaches, the ocean, and rolling green hills of vineyards; the beauty of a wine region.
