Our fearless leader, Lenora, arranged for a driver to pick Lisa and I up at the B&B to take us to our next destination....Vicopisano......about 2 pm. It was only about a 45 minute drive there and easier since there was no train station there.
We were able to have a leisurely morning with our new coffee mugs at breakfast...
We chose an outdoor trattoria that had tables across the street where we could do some people watching. That is one of the most fun things to do in Italia!! Fascinating. See her at our table under the green umbrella!
We began with a cheese tray. Now, when I say cheese tray.....I mean the most delicious cheese you've ever tasted. Seriously. Cheese in Italy is totally undescribable.
Throw in a cold birra!
a huge muffaletta..
and a leetle bit of lasagna....
mmmmmmmmm....another glorious meal in Lucca!
Across the street there just so happened to be one of those chocolat shoppes!!!
Back to the B&B to say goodbyes to our new friends......and a great big hug to Lenora for planning an awesome adventure!
Here we are driving thru the countryside on our way to Vicopisano..where more adventure awaits!
It's always a bit scary when you first come upon the houses and apts here....so plain and unassuming. But once inside, they turn into islands of beauty!!
Wait till you see our apartment!!
(Lisa is with me for 3 more days!)
