Had a good day on the beach at lido di Metaponto ( free camping)  40.355112 16.832947 It’s a road to nowhere again .. Dirt track .. and found a beach bar …loungers Rimini style lay out but it’s not open yetas the season doesnt start till July .. Lots of painting and cleaning going on I am cheeky and asked to park for the night .. Permission granted ..€4 each for a day on the loungers on the waters edge watching a dedger barge doing erosion protection work 100m off shore … Dropping massive boulders to alter the current flow by making an artificial reef … J knows these things ..

Another bit of interest keeping me from my book were people raking the beach at the water line with a net collecting sea shells to have with their pasta for tea .. Yum yum ..but we had egg sausage baked beans and oven baked potatoes ….
