Day 16: May 26 – Marciano Della Chiana

Pictures can be viewed larger….just click on them

As promised by the iPad weather gods, we had lots of rain today, with downpours throughout the day; however, our luck continued as it rained only when we were inside, which was all morning.

About 1:00, we drove into the centre of Marciano Della Chiana, just to wander around and climb up to the top of the tower – Torre dell’Orologio. Unfortunately, it was closed. We might still have a chance to go up before we leave….if it’s not still raining.

I took a few shots as we strolled through the streets.

We stopped at C&C’s favourite bakery for tea, coffee and pastries then returned to the villa. It rained more in the afternoon, so we stayed in. Dinner, followed by some stimulating conversation, reading, computer work, Netflix and off to bed. It was a very relaxing, enjoyable day.

      Hi Izzy, Yeah, that was funny! Bonnie received your letter this morning, so she’ll be writing to you soon. She’s off teaching 2 yoga classes today, so she’ll be dead tired when she gets home. I’m ready for a nap now! Your Mom’s birthday came up on my calendar today, so please wish her a happy birthday from us. Can’t wait to see you and Maddy!! Love, Grandpa.
