The Lucca wall in the rain and the sun shine typical Lucca day
A little breakfast and we are off to walk the Lucca wall. We enter through the Porta Elisa , Climb the steps to the walking path on the top of the wall and walk in anti clockwise direction. This walk is 4223 metres and took us with all our photo stops about 2hour .As we walked our way around the views of the Inner city of Lucca enable us to pin point area we wish to see tomorrow.looking outside the wall is the view of the 75 acres of grass land as well as the extended city .There is a multiple amount of tree we pass on this walk ,trees like plane trees, field Maple Red Oak, Hackberry,Cedar of Lebanon and many more which on the photo in todays photo album.
We head back to the B& B because it doesn't matter where you are washing has to be done or there are no cloths to wear and that may not be so good for the people walking around We find the Laundromat got a machine , ready to go but door will not shut ,pushing hard banging nothing worked so I went next door to pressing shop an old man comes in tried than stood beside hip next to the door ,moved his hip out then swung it against the door and bingo it shut, I now know the age long trick to shut a washing machine door.
All the excitement over we stop and celebrate our success with a lovely glass of Chardonnay. We head for home again to shower and get ready for our night out . It a lucky dip as we have no plans made ,so we are continually looking at restaurants menu and at last ,this is the one!
Osis Buco was the dish and it was fantastic ,not because it the best ever made but because it was something different then normal Italian or Spanish food. While eat out under the star we struck up a conversation with a couple next to us which made it and even better night .We are going tomorrow night.
Thats all folks ,see in the blog ,we head to Florence Thursday ,then onto Morocco Friday ,we are there for a week then slowly home.
Love to all Shirley & John
