... following the tram line. It was Sunday, so none of the shops were open. We ended up back at the market and bought some bread, tomatoes and avocado of lunch. In the late afternoon, we wandered around and found a little bar to have a drink at. We sat in the sun, enjoying a couple of beers and a delicious cheese platter with Rochford, Camembert and goats ...
