The road through Piemont abounds with breathtaking scenes
A charming little village is Portofino
On the Portofino - San Margerita shuttleboat
The journey took us from Zurich to Lake Geneva, down through Piemont via Torrino to Savona. Then East to Portofino, back along the coast to Monaco and then back via Torrino and Lake Como to Zurich.
The first sight of the Mediteranean, and in we go ...
At last the shovels and buckets can be put to use.

Menton is a very popular resort ... so much so that a hotel room in mid August is a rarity ...
But full hotels are no obstacle to seasoned campers ... even ones with cheeky kids !
