The day of big sky

Today was one of those days that make you want to come back to Tuscany. Not too hot, but just right, with huge, white clouds and large patches of blue sky. Great conditions for landscape photography. We put a few miles on the VW Golf, exploring a couple of wineries to the south of Montalcino and then driving to the Abbey of San Antimo for the 6:30 pm vespers and Gregorian chanting.
We have been eating our way through the restaurants in Pienza, trying a different one each night and if we like it, making reservations for next week when the photo tour begins. We tried a new one this evening. We have added it to our favorites, and look forward to returning with the group, especially if the weather is warm enough to take advantage of their outdoor seating overlooking the breathtaking Val d’ Orcia.
