San Sebastian

This morning, Constance, Graciela, and Tashana and myself headed out on a bus to San Sebastian (just over an hour away).The weather was confused to say the least and switched between cloudy to rainy to sunny and back to rainy again.  Not per say the best beach weather but it was still warm so I shouldn’t complain.  We didn’t realize it but the Regatta de Traineras, a boat race with local rowing teams, was on so it was super busy!  We definitely lucked out though because the Spanish really do love their sports and the atmosphere was full of energy and good vibes!  Teams all had their different colours on and multiple of them had their own marching bands and they were parading down the side streets with fans dancing along with them.  It was quite the spectacle.  We walked along the coastline before heading back for lunch in the old part of town.

For those who don’t know, San Sebastian is world renowned for their pintxos and they were delicious.  I still feel like my ones in Zaragoza may have been better but they were still amazing.  I had a mushroom (best mushrooms I’ve ever tasted in my life) and iberian ham on bread and one with goat cheese, grilled tomato, nuts, and some sort of pickled beans with a balsamic drizzle.  It was glorious to say the least.  Afterwards we headed back to the beach and caught the end of the boat races.  Then we had ourselves some gelato and went for a gander down the beach.  Afterwards we went to check out the Catedral but other than that we just wandered around until it was evening and time for us head home.  Just a quick getaway adventure for the day ^_^

It's a tad dark as it was raining at this point but you can see the boat race going on at sea!
