A Morning Walk to Lerici...
A couple of weeks ago, our dog Lucy (you all know who she is by now!) was put on a diet for obesity (!). Ok, she may be a bit “cicciona” but obese really is an exaggeration. But we want her to hang around as long as possible, so we are sticking to the vet’s strict program of gross diet food and at least a one-hour walk each day.
At first I thought, “Oh dear how am I going to do this going into my busy season?” I would need to get up earlier (and I am not always so good at that), need to adjust my day, etc. Yet I was determined to do this for Lulu. It did not take me long to realize: 1) I was being a bit selfish thinking I could not organize myself well enough and 2) I was looking forward to our morning walks!
I was discovering Lerici in a different light. The mornings are calm, clear and filled with good smells (and yes, Lulu likes that too). The village and the boardwalk are not packed with tourists yet, just locals having their morning caffè, workers delivering product to the restaurants and people like me, a resident enjoying the morning sun.
Here are a few photos from a daily morning adventure:
