San Sebastian to Orio to Getaria

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.

While we meandered around town Rick was busy capturing sights of his own, albeit a bit more rural.DSC02186

Leaving San Sebastian we arrived in Orio, a small fishing village built in the 12th century.OrioDSC02229

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. DSC02293
