musical St Jean de Luz

St Jean de Luz was eerily quiet today. I was also just about the only person on the beach. This is probably because it was raining, as it does every third day or so in the Basque country. It has remained warm, if humid. I had the sea to myself when I went swimming this morning, save for the fish who were also enjoying a bit of peace and quiet too.

Whilst the official season has ended there is a music festival in St Jean de Luz this week which brings in a large if somewhat more mature crowd. Every lunchtime and evening all available churches and halls echo to the sounds of classical and jazz music. A welcome chapter of more subdued entertainment after the madness that has been summer.
