... they just recently were able to drag that ship out of this port and up the coast to take care of doing whatever they do to sunken ships. What a terrible tragedy for all those people and how scary would that be - it was so close to this little port town.
Getting off the boat, we head into a few shops and walk along the promenade to seek out a good place for lunch. We find a fabulous restaurant with a wonderful staff.. very good seafood salad for Cindy and yummy yummy ...
... heartening, even inspiring, to note that wherever we go, when we say we are from Australia, (...damn, that took 3 attempts to even spell it correctly...hate this bloody iPad..) the look on their faces changes instantly, and suddenly they relax, and beam, and almost without exception, everyone says " oooh, one day I want to go to Australia....." genuinely....)
... was beautiful. Lit a candle for my mom and dad - which I've been doing at each church. Met Mark, Judy and Colette in Casciano (the small town nearest our villa) for dinner. The restaurant didn't open till 19:30 though so we bought some playing cards and went to a bar to drink and play hearts. Then on to dinner which was really good ...
... chairs by the infinity pool. The view is just too good to believe. European picnic lunch under the canopies. We went to Sienna (old medieval city) mid afternoon. It's only about 20 minutes from here and we were trying to avoid the crowds (Rick Steves tip!). Boy - did we ever! It was practically deserted!! So nice!! Went to the Duomo (old church) which was SO cool. ...
Today was a "just hanging day" - we didn't even leave the villa. The weather vacillated between sunny and sprinkling. We spent time by the pool enjoying the sun and when it rained we played cards and did laundry. We had enough left-overs from last night to eat for dinner - it was just as good the second night and no one had to cook! QaqwqaqeZxEd z Dev. M hm ...
