Robena's challenge letter R for Romance.

Robena has suggested I visit Camogli, a very romantic Italian seaside village and record the unsynchronised church bells (Ringing!)

Now that my days on the bike are coming to a close I wasn't too sure it I would get to Camogli or not. This morning I decided, yes, I would make the effort and make it my lunch stop before heading to France. The riding today has been fabulous, great quiet country roads, lots of chestnut forests and a few clouds. I travelled slower than I expected, I usually do, you'd think I'd know that by now after 150 days on the bike!!  

So Camogli is my overnight stop and I stopped early enough to enjoy a swim and listen to the church bells. I also managed to have another farinata for dinner. Today has been one of those perfect days.

And from the restaurant that made my farinata.  

Even the pebbles tinkle with the wave action.

 The beach is not huge, not too busy in mid September. I imagine a month ago it would have been bedlam, in a romantic kind of way!!

 I love this! Two groups of oldies playing cards on the beach.
