The Beach in Pineto

I have been living in Pineto for 5 days. I have walked on the beach, rode a bike through the pines and explored the town.

The Beach

There were 3 parts to the beach. The area near the sea was wet with small pebbles (chiottolato) and shells sitting on top like French knots on a smooth embroidery cloth. Further inland, on the still damp sand shells and ciottolato were embedded in the sand. The third part was dry sand that the wind was sculpting into rivulets. The ciottolato and shells, blocking the wind, formed the accent points of the curved rivulets. The curving waves repeated in a pattern perpendicular to the shore.
