Bad spring for swimming!
This spring the weather hasn't been that great. It has been rather gray and on the cold side. Sometimes it is possible to go swimming in May, but definitely not this year! I took this photo while waiting for dinner in Viareggio. These are the first swimmers of the season hanging out on the beach as the sun set. Usually in Italy if you see people swimming so early on in the season, 90% of the time they are tourists from colder countries. The beaches in this area have fine sand are huge - very wide and long, unlike a lot of other Italian beaches, which can be small and have mountainous cliffs or small rocks instead of sand.
