Late summer at Ponte a Serraglio

Summer is almost over. There has been little rain and the river is low.

Our local heron has shallow water in which to search for fish.

Crows are trying to catch fish too.

Rain is expected today and the river will change. We need some rain, so I hope it comes.

  5. Hope you get this rain we are having in Paris for a few days. When we cruised the Danube the water levels were so slow some of the cruise boats could go to Bucharest. We were fortunate that River Duchess got through. The captain kept speaking of water levels. Sorry your river is low. Talk soon x

  8. As I view your lovely, thoughtful photos a melancholy track is playing from Downton Abbey; seems most fitting for the culmination of summer and Signore Talenti’s affection for his duck.

  14. I love seeing Signore Talenti’s duck and the heron – they are iconic fixtures in the Ponte a Serraglio scenes. So wonderful for your to return to your gorgeous apartment amid familiar surroundings. Warm ‘Ciaos’ to the locals: Annalisa, Cherry, Agostino for me. Look forward to seeing more of your adventures on your blog.
