With the wedding now over,it has been arranged that anyone who wishes can join with others at the hall which my Mum and Dad use for their  old tyme  dancing club.and there they will put on an evening of Modern and old tyme dancing for those who wish to come.there will also be some light refreshments available,meanwhile Angela and I will be taken by Tony and Jessy with my Dad and Mum,and  Angelas  Dad  down  to Dover in his car so that we can catch the train France to begin our Honeymoon in Italy.Mum Dad and Jessy with Tony will then return to the  dancing  back in Canterbury,meanwhile Angela and I will be on the ferry which takes us to France. then by train  to Paris,where we will change  to the express  night train  to Marseilies, then again changeing there to another train which will take us along the beautifull Mediterraneon coast to San Remo in Italy.we arrive at the hotel  which is lovley,and it has very nice large  bedrooms and a balcony which overlooks the main road in San Remo.  after a nice shower,and unpacking our things,we go down to the restraunt where we  are intruduced to our waiter whose name is Bruno.the  evening meal is Spagetti, and we are not used to eating this, so Bruno shows us how to twist it around the fork  this causes a lot of laughs,as it keeps slipping off the fork, Bruno is a really great chap,  so we  really feel welcome  here, After eating  Angela  and I decide that we will take a walk along the road  to the sea front,also to get an idia  how the town is set out as it happens .the beach is only a stones throw way from the hotel,So next morning we decide to go to the beach to do some sunbathing and swimming,at beakfast we  hear another couple speaking English, and it turns out they to are on honeymoon too,so we team up  and decide we will all go together for a day on the beach and swim.the sea, the water is  lovley and warm and so very clear that you can see the bottom which dosnt look far down but when I try to swim to it  I have to give up because its still  a long way away.and deeper than you would imagion,Next day we  walk around the shops to see what they sell.then we meet the other two.and decide that maybe we can hire a car sometime,  and do a trip along the coast to  visit Monti Carlo,  Nice Canns, Etc. as I am the one who holds a full licience,I will have to be the driver, we will find a car hire company sometime next day, and hire a little car.and do run,  next morning  we find a hire car company and ask if we can hire one for the day.but the owner says I will have to  aquire an Italian licience,but this will not be a problem  as he will  go with me to  the  licienceing  department,  he will translate  for me  from English to Italian.So now I have been given an Italian Licience  My name becomes Leonardo .Pankhurst. so now  he can hire us a little Fiat 900 so this is great, and  we are all O K for the day.I  drive it back to the hotel and park it so we can get an early start  to-morrow morning.  now I have to rember to drive on the right not on the left
