We took a bus from La Spezia to the beach city of Lerici on Sunday. The private beaches were closed so we did what the residents do. We found a giant rock next to the gulf where we planted ourselves for most of the day, soaking up the Italian sun and swimming in the warm water. We even saw the Italian championship game in water soccer. It was our first time to Lerici, a city we hope to return in the future. However, the bus ride up and back was an experience. The bus, designed for 50 people, was jammed with about 100 or more. It was worth the trip!
