San Remo

We had found a beautiful campsite at San Remo, a seaside town very close to the French border; our pitch overlooked the sea

Seaside Pitch
The weather was warm (20 degrees) and sunny with just a few clouds topping the highest hills surrounding the town.  San Remo town was about 4k away from the campsite along a wide cycle path that must have been a coastal railway at some time.  The path travelled on for 25k.  Saturday was market day and we enjoyed a leisurely stroll through the stalls, mostly selling the usual market rubbish but there was a covered marked selling fresh produce – fruit and vegetables, fresh fish, meat and cheeses as well as olives, bread , pasta and so on.  We stopped for a beer at a sunny cafe in one of the lovely squares and then went on to the port for lunch at a fish restaurant close to where the fishing boats unloaded.

We planned to stay in San Remo for a few days before heading north towards home.
