A lie-in and a late breakfast after yesterday’s long drive from Pompeii. Susan has prepared a Chinese for tonight with a chicken curry in the slow cooker for tomorrow. Whilst I did the washing ,which was done in bright sunshine this morning (part of our preparation for Rome need to be clean for the pickpockets and Pope) and by 14:00 thunder lightning and it’s bucketing it down. Most of washing dry but Susan is now under the table because of the extremely loud bangs. I thought that the roof light might break it was being pounded so much. Our pitch has become a lake/river and my crocks (£3 from Asda) may float away. All put together a lovely day with a late lunch and the last 1/2 of a bottle of Pinot. The French couple opposite put up there brolly went to the loo and back ..then drove away in there transit camper! We can see the trees now:-)
The pitches here are quite small with just enough room for Hetty with the awning up and a small hedge to the next pitch. But how else can you stay in Rome for €9 a night each we have power included.
It’s a free bus to the metro station and about 20 mins to Rome. We now have to decide how long it will take us to visit the sites we want…then buy the appropriate metro ticket. It can be a hard life travelling with sun ..beach ..culture and architecture to experience but rest days like today put a bit of vigour back in our step. Another glass of Pinot Dear ?
