Day 15 - The Last Day of the Belvedere Hotel

Last night was the big sea food dinner again.  Marina made the giant seafood paella.  There was also this dish with tiny octopi.  That's a teeny tiny octopus wedged between the two black olives.  Jim and I ate a few mussels and this morning we really wished we had not done that.  We have been slightly queasy and under the weather for most of the day.

We rode out to San Clemente with Don and Jamie.  It's just a delightful ride with a little climbing, but not a lot.

This is the view from the top.

These flowers were growing in profusion.  They look like crocus, but I think it's the wrong time of the year for them.  They're pretty.

Tomorrow we are up and out.  We take a shuttle to the train station at 9:30, arriving Bologna about two hours later.  We'll drop our luggage at the hotel and then taxi to the airport to pick up our rental car and drive it back to the hotel.  I'm not sure what we were thinking when we decided we needed to have the car on Sunday.  I think we may have been thinking we'd leave Bologna on Sunday, but now we're not.  So, there you go.  We're going to drive to Padua for two nights.  One day will be spent in Venice and then we will head out into the great wide open.  We need to buckle down and make a plan, because it's almost upon us.
