Week of 16 November 1925 - Google Docs

Monday, 16 November 1925
I went for a walk in the hills after a visit to the dentist to get my plate attended. I walked up to Monte Allegro where I had my lunch, and then on up to Monte Rosa and back to Rapallo by Monte Cantello and Sant’ Ambrogio.
Polly, Enid and Pippa drove to Santa Marghenta where Enid and Polly did some shopping.
Pippa’s foot still swollen.
Tuesday, 17 November
I went by bus to Portofino Vetto and walked out thence to the new signal station. Lunched there and then decided to try and get to San Fruttuoso. I followed instructions in the little guide book but got into a very bad place and after many attempts to find path climbed back to the path and got back to the Vetto Hotel. Had tea there and walked back to Rapallo.
