Since we did not have Internet for many days we kept our posts to a minimum.  Nothing like getting the posting almost done and then loosing the connection with all the pictures.  Here are some pictures of our travels.

While in The Marche we walked through an olive grove.  Some of the best olives are grown on trees that are over 100 years old.  From the picture you would think this tree was going to be firewood this winter.  These old trees are regarded as being very special.  I feel like an olive tree, getting better the older I get!

The next picture is of the little olives that are just starting to develop on the tree.

This the view from our window when we were in Chianti County.

And of course a glass of Chianti with our dinner was a must while here 

The one drawback for this hotel was the bathroom as you can see from the picture.  Then we found the modern version and we were happy.

Wild animals were found in the strangest places.  Some behind bars and others in the vineyards

Evening in Valdobbiadene 

Must say thanks to the Hotel Continental in Treviso, I have used their wi-fi to post the updates to our blog and check our emails.
