The Giuseppe Giusti Museum
After the Ferrari museum yesterday, the “Ferrari” of balsamic vinegar today. If only I could post the heady aroma from those barrels for you to enjoy too.
“Giuseppe Giusti is the oldest Balsamic Vinegar company in the world, founded in Modena in 1605 and now guided by the Giusti family’s 17th generation”
With the joy of the return of WiFi comes the joy of posting our ongoing Italian adventure and our visit to the spectacular Ferrari Museum in Modena today where the cars literally glow with style, beauty and drama.
Our memorable visits to Siena, Montalcino, Sant Antimo, San Gimignano, and Chianti country I’ll post about on returning home. One more day in Modena and then on to Ferrara and Venice before our last weekend in London. It’s then back to the studio and paint, paint, paint.
The view from the Pontevecchio this morning after we arrived from Rome was simply breathtaking.
More photos for this week’s photo challenge: scale. On to the Tuscan countryside in the morning.
A day to remember and a first for me blogging from my iPhone.
It began with a special and unexpected moment never to be forgotten.
The rest of the day fitted well with this week’s photo challenge: scale as Rome is all about scale at every turn.
After our walk along Spanish Banks last week we took the Admiralty Trail, one of our favourite pedestrian pathways through the Pacific Spirit Regional Park, and enjoyed the glorious October fall colours illuminated by the afternoon sunshine.
Whether you have two legs or four there is nothing pedestrian about this pedestrian pathway, as you walk, jog or cycle beside Spanish Banks and English Bay as we did yesterday, with the Vancouver skyline in the distance.
Could this be one of the most scenic pathways in the world?…
…but I’m a little biased of course.
Finale Ligure reflection matted and framed.
The window is from the Youth Hostel in Finale Ligure, Castello Vuillerman, where we stayed in 1999. We’ll never forget climbing the more than three hundred steps with packs on our backs to the Castello where the views of the city were well worth the climb.
The first variation in ink and water-colour repurposed from Studio 365:Day 145…
…the journal entry from our visit
…and the original window reflection.
