Had a good ice cream in ...

... and cafés and on Sundays a fascinating antique market.

It was time to say farewell to Sandra, (she had been a complete star) and soak our weary feet in a bath. We then mosied along to an Italian restaurant Sandra had recommended. It was a fun, bustling place, shades of the French brasseries. Having skipped lunch we were hungry but the portions were gargantuan! We were glad of the walk back which resembled more of a waddle, perhaps too much time ...
