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