J is ill
I think it’s to much sun doing the Cinque Terre on Monday ..
He woke with a headache yesterday but we moved on to our next port of call which was Rapallo .. It was mooted originally to go in by train then a boat to Portofino but J thought it better to drive in .. Found a carpark @ €1-50 per hour but hey ho we are only here once .. Just managed to get through the barriers with a bit of scraping of a building .. Whoops..
He didn’t seem bad but quiet .. Off we walked to the bay about 1k .. Lovely town .. Very riviera..perfect day again for a boat ride … He still has a headache .. Got off in Portofino and sat like the tourists we are with our sandwiches in tinfoil watching the super rich getting off and on there motor yachts with Gucci bags …. How the other half live is incomprehensible to me ..
Well we sat in the shade for a while watching the world go by .. This in it self is unusual as he is alway off to look at something .. Taking photos and such … But not today .. He wanted to go back on the earlier boat ??? Sighs … I wanted to stay longer and do more wandering. .. But he says his head is banging so back to the boat and Hetty … Now he starts throwing up … If that’s not heat stroke I don’t know what is … Cold compress and lots of water … Eventually he is able to drive .. I found a camp site 2k away … We got lost and a very kind young man offered to get in his car and show us where it was and we accepted gratefully .. It’s a costa plenty campsite but no other alternative as J hasn’t got out of bed from 8pm last night … No food just water and headache pills ..it’s now 9am….So we will wait till he feels more himself ..
And the moral to this story is wear a hat in the sun ….
