Santa Maria di Leuca turns out to be a pleasant little holiday town on the tip of the heel of Italy. Nothing special, but the gelato is welcome at the end of the day. The campsite is nearby so we take a look. When Gayle spots the swimming pool I know we're staying. Incredibly, despite the army of campervans that have also arrived the same day, we find a tranquil little corner far from the mad crowd. The site is shaded with pine trees. We bathe, we feast, and we get chatting to Mayann and Paul, who are in a little old VW campervan. We end up staying and relaxing along with them for a few days. It's a pleasant lazy interlude and it's great to meet friendly folk.
