It's Raining It's Pouring

Bloody Londoners Keep Bringing the Rain

storm 16 °C

When we set out on the ferry for Bellagio, the sun was shining and we were thinking how lucky we were, after the terrible weather we'd had with Tara and Emma, to get a chance to see Lake Como in the sunshine.

After spending a couple of hours there, we hopped back on the ferry. Mid way through the trip, the rain came... then the hail! Hail was pelting into the car ferry, as we helplessly tried to get sheltered (unsuccessfully). As we arrived at Menaggio where our cars were, we made a mad bolt through the hail to some shelter. This was the result...

Nevertheless, as much as we hate the weather they inevitably bring, we do love having visitors. This time it was Simon's old mate Daniel, and his girlfriend Robyn and friend Ange. And Sayos came along for the ride as well.

We had a really enjoyable few days in Lake Lugano, picnics, walks on the lake, bike riding for some, and of course the usual shenanigans.

Sayos was up to his usual tricks...

Scenery was picturesque as always...

And on the way home we had a day in Bergamo, enjoying some fine food and another amazing church.

Back in Verona for a week now, catching up on veg-out time. Ah, la dolce vita.
