|We had a lovely May Day walk to a nice restaurant near Diamante, Il Vecchio Frantoio|
In Italy, the old day is known mostly in the north I gather and is called Calendimaggio.
One of my favorite things about May Day is that some of our best plants show off and raise our hopes for a great summer.
|Here is the path through a park by the river running through Diamante. It's about a mile to the restaurant.|
We celebrated with a nice walk to a restaurant called the "Old Oil Mill"
(Il Vecchio Frantoio).
There's a big old mill here in Santa Domenica Talao. It is still a ruin. Everyone brings their olives to a new mill nearby. It would make a great restaurant too if the town could figure out how to attract more tourists to it, etc.
|Our good friends. Some walked with us, others drove...|
