So today we decided to head to the coast to the Tuscan beach resort of Viarreggio. Apparently this was a very fashionable resort for Italians in the 20s. I guess you had to be there at the time!! One thing we have learnt on our travels is to get there early to avoid the crowds and heat. It all got a bit stressful this morning just trying to get onto the beach.

... to bring home. Mary & Tracey caught up on the washing. (i definitely was all for not doing much, i really just sat, read, played sudoku and generally took it easy)
Late afternoon we all got ourselves cleaned up and made our way for Dinner at ‘Bottega di Cose Buone’… oh my God!!! Are we ever going to learn ???? As usual the quantities that they dished up at the Bottega was verging ...
