We wake up each morning wondering what the weather will offer us. We have watched zero television (none, nada, nothing) and no weather forecasts since we have arrived…so, now that’s May 7th to 20th with not much news.
It is a gigantic plus in our lives. We have to figure out how to ignore most of the news from this day forward. Not selfish, just that it’s a bunch of issues that we cannot affect and that really don’t affect us. When you get a chance to wander a country where history is counted in the thousands of years; not the hundreds, you gain a perspective about life and place and time that is – just different.
Other folks have their own interests in which to indulge at the beginning (or end) of each day.
We decided to stay local today, so we motored to Castiglione del Lago, about 30 minutes south. We had been here last week to catch a ferry boat to Isola Maggiore and had a great day on the water with lunch on the island. We never got to see the hill town and the castle, church, shops, etc.
Today we did the market day, saw the sights we needed to see and decided to go to the next town north of here to have lunch. There was a place on the water that the Boyds remembered…they rented a house in Peggio a few years back and went to Pagnano sul Trasimeno to eat. Lunch right on the water with a bit of wine was a nice touch; gelato after in a shop nearby made for a delicious ending to our midday. Back to the house for some work and dinner.
