Two friends meet and...
« on: June 15, 2013, 12:25:03 pm »
As anticipated in another post, on Saturday MGValerio and I met in Tuscany, at half-way from our homes in one of the first true hot days of this year.
The meeting point was Orbetello, in the midlle of a lagoon connecting the mainland to a Monte Argentario, a promontory full of rich houses and  villas for wealthy people... ;)

When we arrived we met my son who was just unboarding from the  ferry from Isola del Giglio (the island where the Costa cruise ship wrecked because of the "not so brave" captain... )
He went there for one week camp with the University for geological research (yes, he took Geology at the University :)  )

This is a pic of Valerio, me and my son


We then had a trip around and here are some shots of the stunning views we had....



Here we have the silhouette of an unaware Valerio dealing with his top case and his glasses...  ;D


Finally the deserved reward for the trip: lunch at a restaurant!
We found one at the harbour of Porto Santo Stefano, the main city on the promontory
Look at what we had as first course...  8)


... and what we had as second course...


Needless to say that we gad a great lunch and Valerio will post a video (as usual) about the whole trip.
Here is a snapshot while he was filming our pasta...


On our way back to the parked bikes we saw the arrival of the participants at a regatta (I told you that it's a place fro rich people... ;)  )
Some snaps of the boats docked and a view of Porto Santo Stefano
(notice the young lady in white bu... er ... slacks at the center of the picture...  :P :P)




We had a great day together and hopefully we'll meet again soon...  :D

As last thing, here are a couple of shots of an old beauty parked there...

Interesting lane sharing. Is that how they do it in Cali?

That traffic jam was due to a temporary traffic light installed for some works restricting the lane to one direction at time.
Moreover the weekend day and the shining sun increased the traffic and....  ;)
