After several days we are now leaving Sestri Levante, we have had a lovely time here, very relaxed, and the campsite has been very friendly, we are in no hurry these days, as we are working our way back to Spain, and have over two weeks to achieve this, also Geoff is dragging his heels as he does not want to go back.
We are using an Italian Aries book, which has not been made up to date since 2006, so we pick several places out, and hope we find one. Geoff wanted to go to Alassio, another place he remembers from his youth, so we went most of the way on motorway, and then we headed for the sea-front, which was a mistake, as now it is all one way systems, and narrow streets. One road we went down, we both had to look out the windows to avoid hitting anything, we had at least 2cm on one car, and we quickly headed out onto the bigger roads, stopped for five minutes on the seafront then, decided to move on. We looked for Aries, but then suddenly decided to head for France, so we set Tom tom up, and we were off, back on the motorway, and headed for Port Grimaud, in the South of France.
We had a good journey, but now the roads are far busier, we found an Aries, which we did not like, so found a campsite, after a bit of an effort, with only one place left, we couldn’t believe it, middle of September and everywhere was so busy. We decided the place they offered us was just too small, and too hard to negotiate Rosie into, so we left, and went back to the Aries.
This Aries, had no barrier, and the machines did not work for the parking charges (13 Euros), apparently a man comes around in the morning! Well we eventually settled down, took the dogs out for a long walk, and had an early night, which was just as well, as all night Lorries were thundering past.
