I was up at sparrows fart (..... now that's a suprise - NOT) to check out Bilbao while she was waking up.
I meandered past the Gothic-revival Catedral de Santiago (St. James' Cathedral) and over to Mercado de la Ribera (Ribera Market). From there I headed around the Teatro Arriaga (Arriaga Opera House) along the Nervión River and back to Hotel Bilbao Plaza for breakfast with the rest of the group.
But all was not lost, as imbibing in a couple of after dinner drinks and Pintxos at Galipó was a whole lot of fun. Hanging out with the friendly locals, while being made to feel welcome, by laid back cruizy bar staff, made for a great experience.
