Vision 20/20

And it’s not over yet. This is my sister’s visit in twenty images. Even with a single photo from each location (okay, and a bit more from home) I had to stop myself at 20. It begins and ends with colourful bits to bite with plenty in between, including the first use of bikini this year. Click…

Thursday Doors, November 24

We conclude the Vetulonia trilogy with the obligatory Thursday door post. First we had a look inside the Etruscan museum, then we went outside, and now it’s door time. Plus a window, plus a cat.

And yes, I found @SnowMeltsSW even before they offered…

Thursday Doors, October 13

With parents safely on train, I conclude that we have seized the week’s only two really nice and warm days to discover five new towns, their autumn feasts, a museum, a couple of tombs, a Pinocchio, and of course the doors. Three door images from each of the five towns coming up. 1. Caldana (community…
