Another day in San Seb .. We are the lucky ones…

Cool and over cast so what do we do today as it’s our penultimate day in Spain and of travelswithhetty for this year as the ferry leaves for UK tomorrow at 15-15pm …

Let go down town for the lunch we have been promising our selves for the last 30 or so days ..

Bus No 5.. this time getting off at the west end of the bay and headed for the old town just 3 ml away .. Even with the drop in temperature people on the beach both surfing and swimming .. Mad !!!

Now to find a restaurant with in our price range .. Not La Perla at €45 each and one where we could understand the menu as mifi gadget was left behind and it’s good for translation ..saw one but now to find it again after we’ve walked all the streets of the old town … Another 20 mins of searching and YES it’s here .. OK I say .. In we go .. By this time it’s near 3pm and didn’t want to return to Hetty unfed .. Small room .. White table clothes .. Just one table left .. That’s ours ..and breath … Menu in English .. The host has English .. Sighs … I will have Paella as my starter So does J .. I ask for the cod in green sauce ..HE for meat balls !!!?+#% … Me Profiteroles ..Him Rice pudding ..and within the plate la jour is a bottle of house white …

Paella was huge .. He said a bit bland .. My cod was poached in moulles marinare sauce with bread to mop up the gravy .. Yummy ..His meatballs were disappointing !?!?! But his rice pudding was described as warm ice cream with lumpy bits …I hate rice pud of any sort ..

All in all a perfect last day lunch costing €39 for two with wine and coffee .. Yr can’t beat that ….full to busting we stagger to our bus stop and hopped or rather crawled back onto a No 5 to the University and Hetty Hymer

Me and Him and Hetty like adventures ..We spend most of our summers sailing Now a little elderly for big boat racing and have turned to Radio Controlled Yachting competing nationally and even internationally ..I have travelled to many countries in my other life BJ (before John)lots of Indian backpacking trips. Panning gold in the Yukon..Pacific island hopping ..Far east and so on ..John won't go to India but I managed to get him to Morocco and Sri Lanka but didn't expect a Tsunami.
