CHUGGING ALONG-7 September 43 km.

I felt like a mischievous boy putting my tent up right in the middle of Riva Ligure. But I did it. :).

It was darker than this when I put it up.

I paddled some 20 km and took a pit stop at San Bartolomeo al Mare. The guy in the port didn't want me there with the kayak. I told him I was extremely tired and needed water. He gave me 30 minutes and took my passport to make sure I was ok. I bought some food, rested and then got my proof of Canadian citizenship back and paddled out. 

  Iconic Italy. Great looking village.

As I get closer to Genoa, the landscape changes. Big rolling mountains. Hanging threatening clouds. But the sea is still calm, though extremely choppy this morning.  

 Just a short stop to stretch in Abenga. Google Maps to see where I was then onward 30 min to a camping place.

I found it. Pulled my kayak up to land. Took the gear out and set up tent. Showered. Shaved. Drank water and ate some food from a tin can.

Got some wifi. Happy with that, but major slow.

Seems as though vacation is over. Have the whole place to myself. So I use the space.  Bit anxious as I still am not too certain as to how I will make it to Piacenza. Hah. It will work out.

All I need is a coffee to make this a perfect day. Hah. Maybe another day. Pastry and coffee in Nice is hard to forget.
