Day 157 – Manfredonia

This really is a fine beach – 3.5km of sand one way, 4km of sand the other way, with a river at either end. The beach isn’t cleaned so it has the usual rubbish washed up, old bouys, bits of fishing net, weather worn pieces of polystyrene and driftwood soothed by sea and time. This all adds to the pleasure Ben and Jack get from their play: filthy polystyrene becomes a valuable treasure, fishing net stirred with a stick becomes soup and a punctured bouy is a chair, so we soon have a banquet fit for a pirate.

The bread here is very large and very good.
