Back from Italy and off to Scotland!
High View of Florence
Bill and I had just under a week in Italy last month and had a really good time. The first part of the trip was a couple of days in Florence and it was really blissful. We took the city tour on the open topped bus and climbed above the city to San Miniato al Monte I took the picture shown above from the terrace below this wonderful old church – it must be close to heaven up in the hills overlooking the city of Florence.
One of the most famous sites is the Ponte Vecchio, one of the bridges crossing the Arno – very much a tourist destination but still an unforgettable place. I might add the the two vast ice creams purchased nearby were also unforgettable both in delight and in the cost!
I will be in touch again shortly after our Scottish weekend- off tomorrow at 8.30am
Happy stitching Jane
