With oranges picked from a tree and sliced to eat to lemons, fresh eggs from the hen-house and an enthusiastic young niece to our host to greet us we felt right at home in our tiny house style apartment up in the hills of Rapallo Italy.
This morning before walking down the hill to get groceries I walked up a ways until I could see the Mediterranean Sea.
We are surrounded by hills with little spots of inhabitants scattered around.
I believe there is a bus that goes around to the area across from us. I hope so because it would fun to have a closer look at this hilltop.
But it is the sea that is calling me right now.
The Bird of Paradise blooming outside our door
nor the abundant number of prickly beauties
and not even the roses will keep me on the hillside today.
We are off on the twenty or thirty minute walk to see the sea and get a feel for this place.
What is holding your attention today?
