A virtual Boxing Day Walk

Due to heavy snow we were unable to reach the local ski slopes for our traditional Boxing Day walk, and considering that the fourth member of the band was in England, (grandma) I thought it might be nice to meet up here virtually all the same.

Playing silly b--------s!

Happy New Year!

A night time stroll

NO snow but a decisive nip in the air as we returned to Bazzano to visit the cribs. 88 houses in the village have set up a nativity scene in their garden. We only managed to see half but had great fun tracking down the little lights. Some were very imaginative, like this one winding its way up a tree trunk.

This one carved out of a Parmesan cheese by the
local dairy.

Spot a couple of extras in this life size one!

A sweet one in a demijohn.
Happy Christmas to ALL my readers ???!!!
