In the summer of 1934: Shep Cornell, Rowland Hazard, and Cebra Graves recovering alcoholics in the Oxford group helped Ebby Thatcher. Cebra happened to be the son of the judge who let Ebby go under Rowland’s supervision rather than be sent to the insane asylum over the mountain in Brattleboro, Vermont. Cebra lies buried in the village of Urrugne22 Kms from Biarritz.

Biarritz site of the 2019 G7 summit meeting is known for its famous beaches, therapeutic water and thriving surf scene, Biarritz once a small fishing village, was made fashionable after 1854 by Napoleon III and his Spanish empress, Eugénie. The British are largely responsible for its growth as a winter residence. Visited by Queen Victoria, Edward VII, and Alfonso XIII of Spain, and Russian royalty, Biarritz began to call itself “the queen of resorts and the resort of kings.” In the late six hundreds, Biarritz was the fishing port that developed commercial whaling as the world came to know it. Biarritz conducts a surfing festival and hosts the European longboard championships. Competitive surfing was developed in Biarritz by ‘Mr Sunset’, from Hawaii. the first World Surfing Champion.

Biarritz is ideal for pilgrims, being close to Lourdes, (world’s leading pilgrimage site), Loyola, (birth place of St Ignatius, founder of the Jesuit Order) and St Paul de Dax, (home of St Vincent de Paul), St Jean Pied de Port nearby, is the French gateway to El Camino and Santiago de Compostela. Folklore and traditions of the Basques of the region are an added attraction. More info

Pilgrimage tours and excursions incorporating accommodation, meals, transport, guides, daily AA Meetings, etc will re-commence after the Covid crisis passes; Contact babanglophonegroup@gmail.com (visit Lourdes, Loyola, Buglose, El Camino, San Sebastian, Bilbao/Guggenheim Museum, Fatima, Montserrat, El Pilar, Torreciudad etc,)

Commercial whaling in Biarritz came to an end in the 1900s, the beach where they flensed whales is still there…. no need to worry, the only smell of whales and whale oil today has been superseded by sun-tan oil on bronzed human bodies. If you have a limited amount of time to spend in paradise, start in Biarritz. If you do not need the company of Champagne-spraying airheads from the international people pages, Biarritz is for you. | Slideshow
