Basque-ing in Biarritz

My dear friend and mentor told me about a magical place called Biarritz he and his wife visited in the south of France. The Côte d'Azur holds a special place in my heart, so I was keen so explore a new region along the country's coast. Biarritz is a stunning seaside town in France's Basque Country along the Bay of Biscay.

My dear friend from college visited this past weekend from San Diego. I sold her on basically repeating exactly the weekend experience my brother and I had a few months ago. She obliged, and it was awesome. On the itinerary: oysters at Nick's Cove, wine tasting at Gloria Ferrer in Sonoma and a beautiful hike through Lands End near my house in San Francisco.
