Twilight in the garden

It is the little things we often remember. This is one of those moments the Wiley Traveler has captured. She was walking with friends to Ulrich’s house when she caught a glimpse of him through his wisteria. Deep in a book, enjoying the last of the sun, the moment before he heard their approaching footsteps on his path.

After gathering a hungry gang there on Ulrich’s terrace, they all went out for a food moment. Wiley says that was memorable too. The diners and their conversation were very multi-national, but the pastas and pizzas were evidently 100 percent classic Italian.

Wiley knows the rest of us are chaffing at the bit to join her there. And still counting the days. 22! So, in the meantime, she tortures us with tales of torrellini we can’t quite touch? She has got a headstart on us, but we will be there and making up for lost time – PRESTO.

The next time we meet on this page we hope to have pictures of Italy from Venice to Pompeii. By our cousins Matt and Truth from just down the street here in Maine. They stayed one whirlwind night with Wiley, in Panicale, in the middle of their very photogenic Trip Across Italy. You’ll see. Stay tuned.

See you in Italy,
