Up early and off to the Ferry and then along the far side of the harbour, where canaries sing in cages on the wooden balconies above. A full-sized galleon is being constructed on the dock side- part of the Armada was built here.
Then up a huge flight of steps to the cliff path where I walk alone among pines and oak woods, full of thrush song. Truly beautiful, with the sea murmuring far below.
I take a detour onto a red and white route in order to stay on the cliff path, but join my fellow pilgrim band once I'm back on the yellow arrows. A hard walk but worth it.
San Sebastián is an elegant city with a long Sant beach and a reputation for wonderful tapas, which we tried out several times during the day and can affirm!
Weather sunny but with showers later in the day. Had a nice supper with Justine, a pilgrim from Atlanta Georgia.
I'm staying at the Onterreta Youth Hostel to night as the Albergue was full. A nice four bed room with shower room but swarms of French school children all around. Plenty of slamming doors and rushing about....
In bed at 9.30pm.
