Rainy Biarritz

After Mont St Michel we spent a couple days driving south. We spent one night near Bordeaux and then continued south towards Biarritz on the Atlantic coast. It had been rainy, but we were hoping for a sunny day so we could hit the beach in Biarritz. While waiting out the rain we made some mini pizzas in our toaster oven. Yummy!

The finished product, yum!

Unfortunately, this morning was still rainy so we hid out in our camper and worked on our blog and watched some TV episodes we had downloaded to our laptop. Eventually the rain stopped and we hopped on our bikes to ride a few kilometers into Biarritz.

It’s a ritzy little beach community and I can imagine it gets very busy on warm summer days. Even on a cloudy day like today there were plenty of tourists driving the coast road and walking around town. Although the beaches were nearly empty except for a bunch of surfers.

Just as we were finishing our bike ride and were heading back to our campground, the skies started to get very ugly and the wind really picked up. We made it home before the worst of the rain, but it continued to rain most of the night and we really were glad we’re not in a little tent during a storm like this.
