A slow walk in Tuscany

By Mavis
The next day Barry took us to Toppi but on the way we stopped in this quaint little walled village called Barga where a Scottish community live. I spotted this old Lady going for an afternoon walk or going for one of the Gelatos we had had further down the waySmile

When we arrived home at Villa Grassinni Marianne cooked Lamb chops with Rosemary that grows so prolifically everywhere and some crispy brown fried onions and potatoes . A glass of red wine completed the meal. We watched the sun go down as we sat outside in the warm evening.

The portrait of Marianne was taken by Barry

Is this really the end? Such a shame, really enjoyed your images of Tuscany, Mavis. And those chops are making me feel even hungrier still after just seeing that pizza!
