Early morning both-smiling selfie. They're so cute!
This was their first train ride in Italy and Henry's research paid off well because he knew they had to get their tickets validated before they got on the train. Others didn't and got fined and kicked off the train even though they had tickets.
And they arrived in Cinque Terre a place that Henry has been dreaming of for years. This is the view from their room. 28 Piano terra. Great street name! The are staying in the village of Corniglia. The third of the five villages that make up Cinque Terre. Henry said he could see over to the next village from the top of the hill. They'll be hiking and seeing the other villages over the next three days as knees allow.
They say the room is small but very clean and they have their own washroom this time.
They are in the pink one on the left:
They said the water was great. Really sad I didn't think to send my water camera along. Somehow it never occurred to me that they'd be swimming and not just gazing at the sea :-)
If you don't care for peonies then the rest of this blog might not be for you. We have studies in shade and in sun and in lots of colours. Also we have poppies from across the street, one of my favorite flowers.
Nothing like using a blue fertilizer bag to represent blue sky :-)
I was waiting for the bug to leave when the sun came out.
Not sure if this is a lone follicley challenged Lupin or a wild flower but it is one of a kind in the bug garden.
Seeds for the above flower patch?
It was so nice I went for a second walk after Harry's.
I headed across the street and so did every gnat in the region but my suit of armour prevailed.
Caught these beauties just in time.
