A walk in the woods and music in the piazza

Today was our first trekking type walk so we chose the easiest route, part of no. M23, which takes us from Panicale to the chiesa di Santa Croce ai Cappuccini and then back along the sealed road. There has been a lot of rain this year and the track was quite overgrown in parts, there were no flowers but lots of dried remains and hips to indicate that spring had been very pretty.

No hunting

The olives are forming nicely

There are people who think that these mirrors by the road are to help you see around corners, but there others of us who know that they are really for taking funny selfie photos.

This evening there was a mini market in Panicale, before the Thursday music in the piazza. A bunch of big, old keys isn't something you see at a market at home.

Tonight's music was a pianist and singer called Due Ottavi. They would have benefitted from some spot lighting and also a warmer night.

On the way back to the car we stopped for some spectator sport, the nightly bocce competition was just reaching its conclusion. The children have table tennis available and the older young people were playing cards and music at their outdoor venue next to the bocce pitch.
