Weather initaially was cool and overcast, buth the overcast cleared in the afternoon and the temperature improved to 2C.
Today was an easy day, with a 7:00am wake up call, and bags out by 8:30am. However, we weren't leaving Biarritz until 1:00pm, so had time to wander the town in the morning and grab some lunch. Biarritz is beautiful. I walked to the main beach before following the coastal paths past mini islands accessible by bridges, as well as the boat harbour, and smaller beaches and surfing beaches. Although overcast and a nit cooler than yesterday, the town and coast were beautiful.
At 1:00pm, we left for Bordeaux. Today was our driver (Stephano) birthday, so we had a stop for afternoon tea and celebrated his birhday with red wine and Rose (obviously, Stephano couldn't have a glas as he is driving).
Got to Bordeaux by 3:30pm,and were dropped off at the old section of town for some free time to wander the old section. Picked up at 5::30pm, and taken to our hotel, to prepare fore our group dinner. Unfortunately, this was the extent of our sightseeing in Bordeaux as tomorrow is an early start as we are catching an early fast train to Paris. However, I did get to see a tram being towed. Our hotel tonight used to be a large warehouse for storing wine barrels.
