Yesterday I relaxed a lot and then took myself off to the town pool … It is 10 degrees warmer than the lake. Managed to get 12 laps in before it started to rain and they made everyone get out of the pool. Will go earlier today before the afternoon storm hits.
We were joined by one of the Melbourne boys for dinner and a sleepover as his wife booked a house up the hill about 5 km then proceeded to take the car off to Switzerland for a couple of days … Good work!
There was a guitar festival happening in the village so we enjoyed that for a little while, then Shaun pealed off to bed, John stayed and Scotty and I went I to town for a gelati. There were people queued up for ages, I think the whole town was there … All sitting around enjoying the summer weather. It was great to sit there while enjoying our ice cream and people watch.
This village is great because it isn’t touristy at all … Although 180 sailors and their entourages have swelled the ranks. The village is as neat as a pin … Beautifully clipped lawns and flower pots and gardens everywhere. It is a credit to them. As it is school holidays there are lots of Italian families in the caravan parks enjoying the sunshine. I am even getting used to the language and don’t feel like I am in a bad Godfather movie anymore!
