Rain and a Hike in Assisi
We woke up to rain and I even had to buy a 5 euro umbrella. Shirley had brought hers, so then we were all set… Except that we had planned to hike. So we toured the streets, found a laundry (yay!) and Shirley found the perfect red leather purse.
Pilgrims arrive at the city gate with their umbrellas.
The sun came out in the afternoon, and we were able to hike in the Bosca de S. Francesca — a recently named open space just outside the city walls. It was the highlight of our day.
Shirley pauses at a creek crossing during our hike.
We ended the day with penne pasta norcino, contourno, zuppa, insalata, and vino. (I only do post this food for you, Nancy and Cathe.) :). Buona notte.
