|We sat in the cafe to just enjoy our local surroundings for the last time before leaving for Venice.|
A restful, rainy day that we used to hang around Monticchiello and recharge our batteries for the long drive to Venice tomorrow.
It has drizzled or rained all day and the colours of the hills are soft and subdued, but still lovely.
We packed and repacked our bags in an effort to take only one suitcase to Venice after leaving the car just to make it a little easier for our three day stay.
|Although only a small village, small undiscovered areas would emerge.|
|We took a visit to the cemetary outside the village walls. It ocurred to me that the cemetary had a greater population than the village. Monticchiello can be seen at the top of the gates.|
With the usual coffee and nibblies, it was a pleasant experience with conversation with the waitress/owner and then with a group of middle-aged Irish walking group.
Later in the afternoon our host Barbara popped around with a warm doona as the weather had turned cooler. How thoughtful of her.
|Why is it that cat's always seem to find the most comfortable spots to rest?|
Off to La Porta for dinner tonight to celebrate a week that will remain with us a lifetime.
Check it out here.
And don't forget to look at Barbara's Website.
|Although not religious, Sue decided to light a candle in the church of Monticchiello for our son Andrew who was now safely in Moscow.|
|One last look at Monticchiello and hoping one day to return.|
