I started with some quality peaceful time ...
... then we started packing. This can be hazardous when you have been away for an extended time. The airlines might allow you to take 30 kg but you have to be able to handle it, getting on and off trains, up steps and across cobble stones. Luckily we have done very little shopping so we expect the cases to weigh what they did when we left home, that is, just under 20 kg. There are bathroom scales here and we know that they are meant only for weighing luggage!
We made the most of the sun at lunchtime and caught up with our journal writing. I'm afraid the blog takes priority these days but I still like to write a more detailed account.
After some housework and pot plant watering it was time to take the empty bottles to the recycling point. Kel loves this job; counting and reminiscing as he crashes each bottle into the big container.
Next task was to give the little Ypsilon a bit of a wash. We have travelled ??? kilometres and been very happy with the Lancia.
Time for a gelato so up we went to Panicale and visited Gelateria Vittoria, a new shop in the piazza this summer. The challenge total is still building.
We did a little drive around to have one last look at some of our favourite places, then it was back home to finish off the day's work.
Sunset was at 7.03 tonight, compared with 8.40 pm when we arrived. We just caught the end as we were heading for Bar Gallo.
Even though it seems past Aperol Spritz weather we still had one for old times sake, accompanied by some delicious nibblies.
Some of Aldo's Gran Bruschette Miste was just what we needed as we sat there watching the crowd coming out from today's opera performance and mingling into the life in the piazza.
Just as we were thinking it was bed time we heard fireworks. We could claim it was a farewell but actually it was celebrating the Festival of the Madonna del Busso at Panicarola.
Tomorrow we go to Rome, but not before breakfast in the piazza.
