A Glimpse of Italy
...... - Part 2
We prepared a nice late
then unpacked and rested
for a while. Around 4pm we went for a walk down the main street
and were amazed to find almost everything closed. Some of the
shops and restaurants had signs that said they would be open
from Thursday through to Sunday (thankfully it was Wednesday
already). It got dark pretty soon and we walked along the beach
promenade for a while
before heading back to
our room, we had some spaghetti and then made ourselves
comfortable in front of the TV. Having had to get up early that
day we went to bed early as well.
The next morning we went
out to head to a VERY small grocery store, picked up whatever we
needed for breakfast and headed back to our room to enjoy
Bellies full we went for
another walk along the main street to find that now finally a
few of the stores were open and some of the restaurants were
preparing for service lateron in the day.
We had wanted to go to a
neighbouring town as Tom wanted to get a few of his geocaches
done. Remember, these are all touristy towns, so being there at
the tail end of the season really helps in not being desturbed
when hunting for hidden plastic containers.
He found two while we
were strolling through the town, there were some others along a
path along the waters edge in a nature reserve.
It was quite a walk and
while we were walking the sun came up and it turned into a
beautiful day. We had not expected it to become that nice and
had not used any sunblock and both of us got sunburned a bit.
The path itself was nice
and there was lots to look at, especially since they had "stops"
that showed off sea creatures and other things made out of
things found at the beach.
and an octopus were some
of them. And the scenery itself was great as well.
At some point you could
even walk up to the water's edge.

We walked on and were
amazed by all the snails on the dry brush
We were walking for
about an hour and a half to get to this point, then went into a
pine wood to find another cache and then we walked all the way
back before driving back to our room.
