This was another lunch stop to break up a long drive, 377 miles, from Arle to Pisa.  Pietra Ligure is directly on the Mediteranean and clearly a mostly modern resort town.  Almost all of the restaurants were seasonal and we were lucky to find a small bodega that had a modest menu.  Even though the winter temperatures can go down to the 40’s palm trees abound.  The beach looked lovely.  The only reason we picked this stop was it was a short drive from the autostrada and it was on the beach.
