Campervan Adventures in Spain & Portugal: Zumaia, Flysch Formation & Getaria

Today we got up and walked to the viewpoint by camp. It wasn't very far, but the trail was steep and it was soooo humid! 

Then it was on to Zumaia to spy on the Flysch rock formation

It was a beautiful day and gorgeous views!

We wandered as far as this small beach and then looped back to town.

Itzurun Hondartza beach on the edge of town

I love all of the fun rocks!

Then it was time to head on and we stopped at viewpoints 

And Getaria - this tiny town that is 3 streets wide on a little peninsula

Of course we needed some gelato

It was a really nice, short stop but Raymond's allergies were going crazy by this point - sneezing constantly and had to wear a mask to be able to do anything outside. He was pretty miserable so we decided to start heading towards home and drive as far as we could until we stopped for the night. We made it to Saint-Épain France and camped on this farm there. It was pretty nice, but we arrived there late and left early so we didn't see much.

The boat home was just as smooth and uneventful as the ride to Iceland. We left Iceland at 8pm Wed, Thurs at 3pm we arrive in Tórshavn and had a few hours to wander around, then back to the boat for the night, Friday was at sea, and Saturday we arrived in Hirtshals at 11am. 

The end

So it started raining on us for days and we cut out to come back to Seattle for a few days and wait for it to clear up.....and then Raymond decided he really did not want to go back out. So I at first was pretty upset cause I really wanted to get to Canada, or at least as far as we could while the weather was still nice this weekend. And I was feeling really like we were giving up for no reason. Like if one of us were injured or if I was hating it or something then I would have been better about it. But instead it was like the forecast called for gorgeous weather this weekend and we were just going to sit at home. I figured we could have at least gotten to the next stop and then only had one more chunk to do next year, but Raymond really didn't want to go back out so we decided not to. But hopefully by this time next year we will get the last 2 sections done, and maybe go back and do the section from white pass to snoqualmie as we went RIGHT by Mt Rainier and it is supposed to be g
