Woke this morning to snow falling !!! Blue skies and snow .. Get a grip .. It’s the seeds from anonymous trees .. Like cotton wool falling from the sky ..
It’s every where .. On your clothes and even down my throat .. Whilst chatting to my wingman in the market .. Must have drawn breath .. And in went a dollop of the stuff … Cough splutter and had to be taken to a cafe for water .. Thought my end was here …Lunch bought on the market .. Home grown everything.. Tomatoes to die for and nearly did !!!!
Next place to look at is up and up and up yet again.. It’s a slow scenic ride through Golo di Sagittarius a rocky gorge that squeezes the road like a natural vice and up again to Lago di Scanno for lunch with Bears,Wolves and Lynx .. Again didn’t see any..
Up and up to the snow line and ski resort of one hotel at 5000ft …on we trekked until a sign “via chiusa” ..Road closed?? On the road we wanted to use ??? Now who would come to Italy without a Italian/English dictionary or paper road map of said country ..The Sharmans would .. iPad map ! No signal .. Where are we .. So after a lovely ride and tempers frayed we headed back the way we had come … 25k back found a main road and now we are somewhere!!!! Enough said !!!
Off to Roman ruins tomorrow and the heel of Italy … But Hetty has a knocking sound eeeekkk !!! CV joint was muttered by the driver
