After a quick lunch at a restaurant near the port, they hit the beach. Like most of the beaches in Italy, it was a private (e.g. you pay a fee) beach. And again, pebbles, not sand, were the norm. But the sun and the water were warm.

It was a pretty, breezy day. And the second afternoon in the row that they chilled out.

Once back in their room, they wondered why they’d left given the pretty view from their balcony…
