For a second time we said farewell to Sicily, pausing briefly at a pet shop in Catania to buy a muzzle for Meg – mandatory for dogs travelling Brindisi to Igoumenitsa. We were in the middle of paying for that and some other bits when we noticed Jack was missing. He had left the shop, had dropped his trousers and pants and was peeing in the gutter. I guess we can conclude from that that he no longer needs nappies. The next stage is to persuade him to ask to use a toilet.
We crossed the Strait of Messina for the fourth time, and blasted north along the autostrada.
The campsite is very nice, right on the sea, but no hot water in the bathrooms or for washing up. The beach is fenced and locked overnight and daytime from 13:00 to 15:00. There’s some sort of beacon in the water emitting a high pitched bleep every two seconds. We will have a proper explore in the morning.
