The charming village of Barga, Italy

We spent the afternoon on Thursday last week in Barga, a small sleepy village, maybe a hamlet? near Lucca. Vic is doing the bulk of the driving and Christy is our navigator, together they are finding some great places! I think this is north of Lucca, but as I'm in the back seat with Rita, I couldn't say for sure. All the drives have been through beautiful countryside and I expect it will just keep getting better as we go south. Lots of small mountains here by the coast and usually we can see the tall range inland with the tops covered with snow. Spectacular everywhere you look!

 Spring time in Italy! We've had some nice warm days and some coolish ones, rain, too. The season seems to be ahead of Massachusettes by 2 to 3 weeks.

 Barga from a vantage point in Barga. Much steeper streets than Lucca, which is flat.

 Church on top of the hill.


 Our find of the day, Vic and Christy getting their shot...

 First car I have seen with mold all over it!
 Cute, isn't it?

 Choosing a color...

 Our choice for dinner this evening...
