Monday 16th April - Italy - Lerici
We left Mondovi in good time this morning and drove into Italy. The girls still find the tunnels quite exciting although weve been through numerous tunnels now. It was great to see the Med below us, but not so good to be stuck in traffic jams going round Genova. Having finally got past Genova, we decided to stop for lunch at Santa Margherita de Ligure. It is a really beautiful spot with a lovely pebbly beach and shuttered, sandy-coloured, Mediterranean buildings. We had some lunch and then paddled, splashed and threw stones down at the beach. The weather was great and, because we are here in April, we get to enjoy these lovely places without the summer crowds.

After a few hours in Santa Margherita we continued on to Lerici and found a good campsite for the night.


One negative about today was tantrums two from Keziah, one about croissants and another about rocks. I suppose theyd happen anyway whether we were at home or in Italy!
