Dolly Travels – Monterosso al Mare
Yes, we are in Cinque Terre now. We were so happy to escape the heat in Florence, that when I saw the forecast for Monterosso as being in the mid-80’s during our stay, we were happy. We had no idea of what 69% to 85% humidity felt like. Now we know. I can only hope that I have perspired enough to leave a few pounds here when we leave, which will be tomorrow.
Actually, the weather did change some today. It has been cloudy, still warm, but I spent most of the day at the beach, so I was happy. Fortunately for me, there were no jellyfish in the water. I had been warned to look for them, and in fact, I did see them one year when I was here, but today the water was simply cool, refreshing and clear.
Before we hit the beach, though, we had to stop at the best bakery in town, Il Fornaio. This is one bakery that does as well with pastries as it does with bread. They also make espresso, so after a cappuci con doppia caffe, and a croissant crema, I was ready to go.
