Today we are starting a new tour: A Garden Sojourn Across Italy: From Liguria to Veneto
We traveled from Lucca to La Spezia and had the rest of the day to ourselves. The garden tour will start tomorrow.
TRAVELING IN ITALY
We traveled on a 4 lane highway with periodic rest stops. The rest stops had clean restrooms, play areas for kids, places to eat.
You can buy anything you need here from medicine to toys to olive oil.
The police and ambulance services seem to be keeping on top of things. I have seen no homeless in Italy for the 2 weeks that I have been here.
Driving through La Spezia.
Three of us decided to walk down to the docks to catch a boat to Cinque Terre. We discovered a young lady doing sand art, a beautiful park, a street lined with palm trees and some elementary school kids learning about fishing along the way.
My friends, John and Jim, and views of the La Spezia waterfront. We couldn’t catch a boat that would get us back to the group dinner in time so we decided to take the train.
