So much sun

Today the sun god has come out….the skies are as blue as blue can be and not a cloud to be seen.  The site was really quite quiet during the night helped by the barriers being closed to cars at 10.00 pm.  We did see a security guard patrolling during the evening but how much of that continued after dark I don’t know.

It looks like we will be carrying out the 3 S’s today, swimming, shopping and siesta’ing. Chloe did say if it was sunny today she would swim out to a pontoon in the lake with Amy…time will tell:)

The lake frontage at the campsite gives great access to the water.  Amy was in a quick as she could be.  She is a real water baby. As the morning progressed we were joined by a floating bar.  This boat went from mooring spot to mooring spot around Lake Maggiore selling ice creams and drinks.

By this time the girls were out on the pontoon so we were unable to bankrupt ourselves for a second day running.

The afternoon saw us back in the town…. Wander through a market and the towards the old town where we had a few beers and as we were not in the lake front area much cheaper…..more similar to London prices.



I think if we were here on own own June and I could stay in Locarno a lot longer. There is a Sosta just down from the campsite and while this is not much more than a car park the two of us wouldn’t need much more. The girls have enjoyed the lake frontage and swimming and to be honest our fellow campers have been well behaved and some a source of almost constant conversation. With comments like ‘ what is she doing wearing those?’ And ‘what music is that…our speaker system can easily out do theirs if we tried’ oh and the ‘are they real?’   Meanwhile Bob just sat there drinking yet another beer….. And asking why do so many people insist in walking across our pitch? It wouldn’t happen on a Caravan Club site I can tell you!
