Friday Photos From Umbria ~ August 21st, 2015

view1

It has been a quiet week here in Umbria and thankfully the temperatures are now back to normal. ┬áSince we stuck close to home, I was concerned that I didn’t have any new photos to share for my Friday Photos so today I took a long walk and brought my camera with me. Although I am well aware that we live in a beautiful region when you are busy with the day to day tasks of completing daily chores, you sometimes forget to stop and appreciate the beauty around you. I did that today and will share some photos from my walk with you today.

A field down the street from us was prepared for an ancient game called Piste Ruzzolone. The game involves rolling large wooden disks down tracks.

The road I walk down. The trees from either side create an awning, keeping it cool during warmer days.
