Relaxing bank holiday weekend........
...or at least it would have been very relaxing if only that
dam kitten left my ball of wool alone!
We stayed in a very authentic converted farmhouse just the other side of The Apennines..Lunigiana
An area of very steep and deep forested valleys. Pontremoli is the capital.
Cut off from civilisation the farm overlooks the medieval hamlet of Mulazzo
Mulazzo by night.
Local specialities included chestnut tagliatelle and tagliata- sliced Florentine steak with mushrooms cooked at the table in a boiling hot terracotta pot
The sea breeze drifting up the valley enticed us to spend one afternoon at a fish resturant in Lierici
Shades of the Med.
In the distance the Apuan Alps where Michaleangelo picked up his marble.
In the foreground the pool.
Nicely set off by a ball of Schoppenwool sock wool.
