Oct 17, 2018 - Bike and Beach in San Remo, Italy

Today was a beautiful day. We decided to rent bikes and enjoy the bike/walking path along the sea. What a surprise the tunnel was. At least a mile long and well lighted. We rode about 12 kilometers altogether. Then we rented chairs on the beach to relax.

Oct 16, 2018 - San Remo, Italy: Sightseeing in the Rain

Yesterday was a beautiful day. Today is rain. But we made good use of it sightseeing. We wisely had a taxi take us to the top of the hill where the ancient church of Santuario Madonna Della Costa is located with great views over the city and the Mediterranean.

May 11, 2015 - San Remo on Monday and Tuesday

Monday, May 11th. What a glorious day we woke to. I trundled down to the beach with my book and had an enjoyable morning watching the sea and reading. (Yes, I was slathered in sunscreen) Around 1 o’clock we hopped on our bikes and were ready to tour the city on bikes making use of the numerous trails. As I passed through the gates I heard this horrible crunching of the gear shift mechanism behind me. Bill’s new bike’s gear box had broken. He half carried it down the terrace to our spot. After a few minutes we shrugged our shoulders, and...

May 10, 2015 - Roquebrune-Cap-Martin

On our way to Italy but first we had to stop in the little seaside town of Roquebrune-Cap-Martin. As in most of these medieval towns its streets were steep and treacherous due to the innumerable , very steep steps. (there are NO provisions for the older adult, I wonder where they live). Fortunately, we found a parking spot quite close to the top (The sign said camper cars forbidden beyond this point), so the climb to the Palace wasn’t as arduous as it could have been. This castle was probably built in the 10th century. In 1528 Augustin...

Jun 23, 2011 - A day in the Mountains then to the Riviera

Today is all about scenery and nature in the Provence region. First we had a lovely drive through the vineyards of Provence to Aix-de-Provence and had breakfast at a gorgeous cafe set by an large old fashioned fountain. We each had one lovely croissant and one baguette, some freshly squeezed orange juice and a hot drink – it wasn’t a huge breakfast but it was all really divine and satisfying – even for Jonathan. The coffee exceptional. There was a market on in the main street just begging to be visited. Nicola found some bling which made...

Nov 22, 2010 - Road trip to Venice

15th of November On Monday, after our school experience, we set off for Venice where Harry wanted to have his birthday. We set off and after three hours we stopped to have lunch in Arles - we had French Macdonalds. Yummy!!!Mum wasn't that happy! Most of Arles was closed up for the winter season and it was still raining. We continued the journey heading for San Remo which was our first stop on the trip. This part of the journey was pretty scary as we were hit by bad storms (we now know what "orage violente" means as the road signs kept...

Jun 19, 2008 - Thursday 19 June San Remo

Drove to San Remo managed to find the tourist information got them to make an appointment at the dentist. Checked in to campground expensive ($60) but on the seafront and with a pool so we finally got to sunbake by the pool. Dentisto – the dentist was in an old stone building dimly lit as we walked in. Just the sort of atmosphere for torture. I recalled Sue’s stories from her mother bout visiting the dentist in Australia and having the wrong tooth pulled out.

Oct 9, 2007 - It it's Tuesday, it must be France, Monaco and Italy

Mario Andretti got behind the wheel of the car today (he took off his F. Scott Fitzgerald costume first), and we spent the morning and part of the afternoon on the Moyenne Corniche driving to Monaco, Menton, and Italy -- just because we could! But first a few words about Le Fiancee du Pirate. it is a 15 room hotel that has been in business since the early 40s. today it is owned by a very nice young couple (Eric and Laurence) who, from what I can see, do all the work from cleaning, making beds, making breakfast, pool upkeep, gardening,...

Jul 17, 2007 - San Remo - Paperwork, Pesto and the Palafiori

The only thing that can be said with any certainty about clearing customs in any foreign port is that the steps involved in processing paperwork are never certain. It is not unusual to get different information from the customs agents, ships' agents and other captains and crew regarding the procedure. Four months before Silverheels II was to be shipped from Florida, we began taking steps to ensure that we would have all the required documents and insurance paperwork for the countries we intended to visit. Four months later, the insurance...
