... Italian pizza for lunch whilst we waited for the platform to be displayed. Wendy continued her extreme diet - no solids. We boarded and sat opposite each other in quite comfortable seats for about an hour and a half as we both tried not to go to sleep in case we missed our station. John succeeded in staying awake. We alit at Genova station, were met by a man with a sign saying "Pearce" and were then transported in a Mercedes "S" to Monterosso. Our driver told us that he used to ...

Today was a rest day. MAfter a late breakfast at 9:30 we organised ourselves and decided to go to the next village for a look around. We took the ferry to Cernobbio via Torno so zigged across the lake then back again towards Como. As with anywhere on the lake, it was once again, very picturesque. As we alit, we noticed that there was a market in progress. What luck! It sounded a bit like Victoria Market of old with all the fresh fruit ...

Next we wandered around some of the fishermen's houses, saw an old church or two and old style boats. We passed George 's back gate and saw the bridge over the road from his villa to his garden. Then we arrived back at our hotel at about 4pm. Our kind guide spent some time with us giving directions for a day ...

Plan B.

Plan A is scrapped due to rain. I had reserved a 19 ft center console with a little 40hp Suzuki to tool around the lake for the day and visit some of the small towns that cling on steep hillsides to the waterfront. However, it's pouring out and the forecast for the rest of the day is not looking promising. So it's off by ferry to the main town of Como. First stop is to get a rain jacket and an umbrella, More stuff ...
