I have spent a lot of time in Bagni di Lucca this year. It is wonderful to watch the changes in the seasons throughout the year.
I arrived in January to blue skies and the water high in the Lima river.
Not long after Bagni di Lucca was covered with snow for a while. Even the lower villages were white for days.
A very wet spring didn’t stop everything turning green.
Heavy rain meant the river was often very high.
We did have some sunny days in spring.
Sunny enough for a walk beside the river.
There was late snow in May.
Summer brings flowers, bees, insects and delicious fruit.
I was back in autumn for more changes.
There was more heavy rain in October.
…and pretty autumn colours and mists.
December brought some cold mornings.
…another great year in 2013. What will 2014 bring?
Great pictures from 2013, all the best for 2014, Debra!
Thank you Bente. I am looking forward to more great travel in 2014.

Bagni di Lucca reflects a magical place in the four seasons. I feel privileged to have stayed again in such an idyllic spot during the Autumn months and getting to know the Bagni di Lucca locals and friends as well, all part of the beauties of travel. Have another adventurous year in 2014, Debra!
Autumn is a beautiful time to be in the village, but each season has its own charms.
I think that we both agree in that Bagni di Lucca is wonderful at any time of the year and your great photos will convince anyone. Best wishes for 2014and we shall certainly meet in Bagni!
