Lucca/Cinque Terre

Today we did a lot of traveling. We left Lucca by bus and got on a boat in La Spezia and saw the coastal area of Cinque Terre. There were several small coastal towns that had vineyards and olive groves planted on the steep mountain cliffs right on the edge of the Mediterranean Sea. It was quite the site to see. I was glad to get out of the choppy waters and put my un-seaworthy legs on solid ground again. We landed in Monterosso and had a quick lunch and then boarded a train to Rapallo. Our bus picked us up in Rapallo and brought us back to explore inside the city walls of Lucca. More gelato and espresso was the perfect way to end the busy afternoon.

Tonight we enjoyed supper with our tour group at the Grand Hotel Guinigi. Another great meal; we have been pleasantly surprised that even though Ben and I usually have very different tastes in food, we have both enjoyed the food very much – especially the large supper meals.

Tomorrow we head to Florence to discover more of Tuscany!

One thought on “Lucca/Cinque Terre

  1. Ben!! What on earth are you doing?? Hopefully your wife was the only lady in the ladies room!! Kenny is bringing home pizza tonight for a fun treat. All is well. Grandma had crafts for the kids to do today that she brought from Washington. I learned not to hesitate in the middle of a sentence saying, “but…..” because Naomi can easily copy that word. 🙂
    Wednesday night we went to Awana club. Probably a one time experience…beings next wednesday is the last night the kids will be here.
    Have a great time. Thinking of you guys.
