Catching up with the summer of ’64 ~

Ponte Vechio, Firenze, June 1964

Ponte Vecchio, Firenze, June 1964

What a beautiful picture (if I do say so myself!)! Doesn’t it just exude Florence? Here’s an eleven-year old’s report of the day (and possibly the day before and after):

In Florence now. We went to alot of the big churches yesterday. Today we went up to Fiesole and walked to Settignano. It was like starting a short cut and deciding to take a detour. Our feet were aching when we got there. Our good old motto serves the facts — 10 miles aday keeps the doctor away.

Below find a photo from along the shortcut-turned-detour (according to this site here the walk is two and a half to three hours, so if we walked both ways, I bet our feet were aching! Maybe we took a bus back to Firenze?):
