We then set off about 11am for the Tourist Information Centre and started a self-guided walk around the town. Had to have 11's first at a cafe on the waterfront. No pastries this morning just a short black (expresso) for Col and a Noisette for me. It's a short back with a dash of milk. Have given up on asking for a cappuccino and cafe au lait sometimes has too much milk in it. So the Noisette is the answer.
We then left the walk and wandered back to the hotel through streets we hadn't been along before, for a 'little siesta'. Then we walked to the railway station to see how far it would be on Friday when we leave and whether we could drags the bags! Don't think so - will have to be a bus or taxi. We then ended up in the same little square for 'beer o'clock' and I had my first 'bubbles' since leaving Oz. It was a local one and delightful!
Back to the hotel for last 6pm briefing, then showers and change of clothes and out to dinner. I could get used to this routine! Tonight Pam and John joined us for dinner and we went back to the little square for pre-dinner drinks (another bubbles) and then to a restaurant nearby. Another lovely meal with great company and conversation.
