Day Seven - Hotel Bidean

DAY SEVEN May 22nd Hotel Bidean

Perhaps the nicest place we stayed. Not hugely roomy but very quirky and very atmospheric. Pat, Daniel and I slowly made our way through the town to the hotel.
There was some confusion, to put it mildly, when we went to get our keys but it all worked out fine in the end. We further depleted the water table in Spain with some showers.
The Bidean Hotel deal was half bed and board. We repaired to the restaurant downstairs where a very efficient and pleasant and ultimately well tipped waitress looked after us.
After supper Daniel Barry and I wandered round a town that was quickly going to bed. We had a drink in a bar beside a driving instructor’s shop and got back at 11.00 just in the nick of time. The long walk that day meant that gentle snores quickly followed while blistered feet enjoyed the refuge of the night.

Breakfast the following morning was a pleasant affair.
