Day 10 Fri 18.02.2011

Location   Biarritz Aire day 2
We woke early to more sunshine and decided to have some breakfast then walk along the sea front into Biarritz town centre.
The bread van arrived at 9.00am and the chicken that wandered through the aire yesterday was back.
The walk into town is about 2 miles, it’s a pleasant walk as most of the way we were walking within site of the sea so it didn’t seem too far. We walked as far as the Rocher de la Vierge, a rocky outcrop topped with a white statue of the Virgin Mary, the iron catwalk that joins it to the land was closed but Paul climbed to the top of a big rock and took some amazing photos.
We walked through the town, lots designer shops and surf shops many of which only seem to open during the high season. We bought some quiche for lunch and headed back to the aire. The walk back took a bit longer as we got a bit lost (Pauls fault…lets go that way to cut off the corner…).
After lunch we started planning where we’re heading for tomorrow, we want to travel into Spain but lots of the sites in the North don’t open until April and we don’t want to stay on an aire the first night. Finally found a site that should be open on the route we want to travel.
It’s 7.30pm and the local police have just started collecting the parking fees. We plan to leave at about 8.00am tomorrow if we wake up early enough.

Why did the chicken cross the Aire?
