Before breakfast we watched our neighbours heading for the shower blocks in pyjamas and dressing gowns. We pondered whether we perhaps needed these as I am sure they would make showering easier in the cramped cubicles. But somehow I don’t see us as dressing gown wearers in the great outdoors. However needs must and I am sure they will be added to the list of to buy things when we return home. Some decent flip flop shoes might not go amiss either. After breakfast we disconnected the electric to Suzy, switched the fridge from mains electric to battery, checked everything was Ok and set on our way for Italy.

Afternoon was spent by the pool as at 28 degrees it was about warm enough and the boys wanted to try out the ... read more
