BIARRITZ – We made the one hour drive here this morning from San Sebastian – a very easy day trip. The weather was overcast and rainy (commonplace here) but we had a lovely lunch at a fish place by the beach. kWe were back in San Sebastian for an early evening stroll through the old town.

Day 1,772 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.

ELCIEGO SPAIN – We drove to this small town on the border between Basque country and the Rioja. It’s the center of a major wine growing region; Marques de Riscal is based here; the winery has built a small hotel using Frank Gehry as the architect; there’s a Michelin one-star restaurant in the hotel. We came for lunch.

Day 1,769 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.

GUERNICA SPAIN – We had a long and interesting hike today that led us through the Forest of Oma, a large scale project by an artist named Agustín Ibarrola. You’ll get the idea from the pictures below. I’m sticking to my guns on shooting black and white only – you’ll have to take my word that Ibarrola’s tree paintings are colorful.

Day 1,767 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.
