Hi everyone…well today was a special day : )
As I mentioned yesterday, Jo decided to stay with our gorgeous family in Berceto for an extra night….just to recuperate a little and catch her breath and then meet up tomorrow in Aulla…from where we plan to hot foot it down to the Cinque Terre and have a couple of well earned rest days : ) For me..this was fine, we are a partnership in this journey and we both are individual in our needs.. one of my wishes was to see as much of this area as I can….. and today was magnificent! Mind you..it was not an easy walk..far from it! However the signage was perfect, the ever changing scenery was delightful and the way….although tough in parts, was stunning!!!
Actually the easiest way to describe it to you is to show a few : ) photos..and then you’ll understand!
There’s so many photos from today..and I don’t won’t to bore you all too much with them..but the Internet is fantastic tonight and they’re loading very quickly…so be prepared to be bored : )
The next stage of our journey was plain sailing…until we hit the river…….
We had three options here.. One very easy…take off our shoes and wade across the babbling brook..very gently, nice and easy : )
The second was difficult..not an option..traverse the river combat style on a system of steel cables……….. : (
The third seemed easy..and was the one we chose, head a little upstream and act out a little balancing routine across a plank, a huge boulder and then a torrent of water..hmmm ..not a good choice..
Just a few more photos..I promise. : )
Good night from me…I think we’re heading towards Aulla .but anything can happen : )
Love Netia X
