Today Susan and I crossed 1,000 kilometers pedaled so far! Although we are still along the coast, the terrain has become more hilly and much more rural south of Pescara. The shore is dotted with little fishing villages and roadside stands where the fisherman sell their daily catch.

There is a church that we can practically touch from pour window. I think their bells ring about every 15 min. on Sun. morning!
