The next few days we spent going to the beach right near the "house" which is quite rocky and also rollerblading on the new track that has been installed along the coastline between San Remo and Arma di Taggia- perfect for rollerblading, biking, and walking. It reminded me of California.
On Sunday we put on our skates and skated the entire length- several kilometers, about 40 minutes each way. I fell a couple of times, but I am getting better. "Controlled Crash" I like to think of it.

I sunbathed and read Madame Bovary (in French) on the beach, while Alain swam. I went in a couple of times, but it is extremely painful due to the rocks. Should have worn some kind of foot protection, such as the Croc knockoffs that 40% of the people were wearing.

The water was quite warm, and there weren't too many people there.

Neither of us got burned this year, which was an improvement.

Alain likes snorkeling, and I like the idea of it but every time I try the water gets in my goggles and I see the fish and freak out. Oh my god, there are fish down there!

On Monday we rollerbladed to the beach at Arma di Taggia. I tied my beach towel around my waist as I didn't have a backpack- also added an extra layer of padding. The beach is sandy, but finally the sand is just as annoying as the rocks. It started raining, so we rollered back in the rain.
