The art competition was a big success on Sunday. It was a sunny day and the artists found suitable spots around the park and Ponte a Serraglio to create their masterpieces.

Dirty rotten scoundrels

The beautiful Lima River runs through the middle of Bagni di Lucca. The water is clear and cold and home to trout and water birds. Lately it is also home to water sports, rafting, canoeing, canyoning as well as the usual swimming and fishing. These activities bring lots of visitors to Bagni di Lucca.

Local photographer Paolo Roverani took this gorgeous photo recently.

On Monday this is what the same scene looked like.

Somebody has been dumping filth into the river, usually on a Monday. The police have been notified but there are no results yet. How anyone could do this is beyond me, there must be alternative! This is just lazy and irresponsible.

Sombody must know who is doing this…step forward and rat on them. The river will thank you.

Summer wild flowers

Paul Davies from San Cassiano has been out and about taking photos of the gorgeous wild flowers beside the roads on the way to his pretty village. With all the rain we had this spring they are putting on a great show.
