Buon weekend! It is too muddy to hoe, tie or prune the vines, so Bacco and I took off for the beach this morning. We went to the "strange section" which is not tidied up in the winter and is free from people who might dislike being jumped by my wet flat coat retriever. He had a batch of fun fetching sticks and if you need a little joy in your life, just come on by and you can play with Bacco on the beach. He just loves to swim, jumps waves taller than he is and generally just has a ball playing.
You can see some of the sights from the zona Sentina including a poor doll's head who lost her corpo, the wrong kind of "ski" boot for the beach, and a boat docked in a mode I had a bit of trouble imagining as it was well above the high tide mark.
It was warm today, so hopefully our land dried out a bit and I can exercise my back and arms with the hoe tomorrow. We had our 1st guests of February this weekend and they seemed content with Nascondiglio di Bacco.
The pictures show Bacco leaping over the incoming wave (sorry it is blurry) and body surfing, a perspective of how far the Sibillini mountains are from the beach with horses in the foreground and the above strange sights.
Have a great week and don't forget Valentine's day is Saturday.
Finally, I am americanizing Raffaele with beef stew and a 99 Woodward Canyon Merlot, can't wait!
