Only two blocks to the private beach
We have arrived at Castiglione della Pescaia, Italy- It is a small beach community on the Mediterranean Sea in the region of Tuscany. This is our first home exchange on the trip. Wow! what a place. We may just stay here for the whole two weeks and forget doing any sight seeing. This place is amazing. It is a beachfront community in the countryside with pine trees galore. Each property owner also has their own space on the beach. Most of the spaces are covered cabanas. And there are very few people around. It is our idea of paradise!

The town of Castiglione della Pescaia is a small fishing village with a long wide beach promenade. There are pizza restaurants everywhere you look! The marina looks interesting and there is a castle on the hill overlooking the village.

We rode bicycles into town (10 miles round trip) and got some great help from the Tourist Information office. So if the weather turns bad we have lots of places we can go explore. But for the next few days we have a beautiful beach to enjoy!

In answer to your question
I am using a Tablet to upload to the blog. We take the pictures (Jerry is the photographer) on our regular camera and then save them to the Tablet. It all works well if we have WIFI.
