We brought the Christmas tree that we bought the first Christmas we were here inside for the season. It lives out on the terrace throughout the year except for December. This is the 2016 tree. it is sitting on the floor.
And THIS is the itty, bitty 2014 tree. It is sitting on a stool to make it taller. That’s no longer necessary!
Here is our town tree all lit up.
Today was an exceptionally foggy day. And, unlike many days, it lasted all day. I braved the cold and went out to see what sort of images I could get. I thought they would look better in black and white. Very atmospheric. Here are a few. Click for a larger version.
This is la Rocca or our fortress with a smoking chimney in front of it.
The bridge over the Tiber.
Road along the river.
The town walls and houses above it from across the river.
And finally, a lone fisherman.
Another gorgeous sunset. Mountains in the background and the river in the front.
Autumn’s last gasp. A few leaves hang on.
The town Christmas tree has arrived. It’s a bigun’ this year.
Decorating begins. It will not be lit until the beginning of Advent on Sunday.
