The bike was parked up and ready to enjoy her rest too!
After a small excursion to the local supermarket, Jac and I cobbled together a nice dinner which we ate “al fresco” and then, while the boys watched the football, we just chatted the night away (with wine of course!)
We all took a little stroll through the fortified “Old Town” area before settling down to watch the game. The Sardinians sure believed in being well defended! With the cannons every few hundred feet and this bloody great sling shot, I’d have been thinking twice before trying to invade them!
It was a lovely area though, full of little alleys jammed with stores, bars and cafes. Lovely to walk through and imagine what it was like there in days gone by.
We did pass a bar where some Swedish fans were settling themselves ready for the match, but, in the interest of keeping relations harmonious, decided we should probably not watch it there!
We connected with a family who were in the same AirBnb apartments as us and together we showed the Italians what supporting England means!
…there may have been a minor international incident when an older Italian lady took a dislike to our exuberance but who cares, she was paid up and on her way so just vacate your table lady and move on!

Sunday dawned all too soon and it was time for Jac & Jase to leave. No worries though, we will see them again in just a couple of weeks so it wasn’t a sad goodbye! We spent another lazy hazy day in the garden. Iain catching up on some work and billing while I blogged and messed around with pictures.
I do feel that we missed out a bit on what Sardinia has to offer bikers but we seriously needed that down time after so long in the saddle. Plus, it was great just to ‘hang out’ with friends and have no agenda…just go with the flow, most unusual for us!
Feeling refreshed and ready to ride, we were up before the sun the next morning and riding off to the ferry port where we boarded easily and settled in for the long seven hour sail back to France.
Seven hours on a ferry with a man who really doesn’t have good sea legs…this could be messy!
