Surprise, surprise! A queue for the shuttle bus the length of the quay.
Anyway, caught it and found the open top tourist bus (€11.50 each).
Nice tour of the City and then a look at Acazaber Palace which was very
interesting and must have been a stunner in it's heyday. Then the Cathedral
but didn't have time to look inside.
It was Wednesday 15th. August and it would appear to be a Public Holiday
(for what, I don't know). Everything very festive and people dressed
up in their Sunday - best, trouble is, for us, this meant that very
few shops were open. So, it was on the open top bus again (€15
this time). Tour was over by 1 PM and back on board for lunch.
2008 Black Watch.
Back again! Just had a wander around this time, you can have too much
of a good thing.
2009 Saga Ruby.
Easter Sunday and another Festive atmosphere but this time there was
a big parade which was great. Spent the morning standing by the side
of the road soaking up the atmosphere and back on board for lunch.
2014 Saga Pearl II.
A very hot day so, after catching the shuttle bus
in to the city, we had a slow wander around before going back to the
2016 Black Watch
We were taking a stroll along the beach when we saw the open top
bus so (we hadn't been on it for several years) got on. €29 each!
I know there's inflation but..... AND, the first seats we sat in the
headphones didn't work. As soon as some people got off we changed seats
so OK then. Having seen it all before (even though not for quite a while)
it wasn't really worth it and the bus seemed to take an age at some
of the bus stops with the driver chatting to other Company employees.
Definitely not worth the money now, we'll stay aboard next time.
