Beach bum day. Yes, today. No other plans than to sleep, read swim, and have octopus for lunch. And maybe sleep, read, and swim in the afternoon. The Eight Mountains is perfect Italian beach reading: beautiful, reasonably light, and insightful.
Even if it’s just us and a few thousand other beachgoers, the last beach club before Laigueglia is less busy. Even the beach guard’s eyes have an easier task here. (Alassio, Italy; July 2018)
