There has been some wild weather in Bagni di Lucca. There was snow for a few hours before rain came to wash it all away.
The river that was extraordinarily low this summer is now roaring past.
I wish I was around to see the snow and rain. I love to stand at my window to watch it all happen.
Thank you Paul for taking photos of my front yard.
I would love to have been at the Presepe Vivente in Granaiola on the weekend. This event is one of the most delightful things to happen in Bagni di Lucca. The whole community gets involved, turning an ancient village into living theatre.
Local photographer David Bonaventuri took these amazing photos. Please look at his Facebook page for more and while you are there see the amazing photos he takes of our beautiful area.
My friend Paola managed to get her photo taken with baby Jesus, played wonderfully by Rafael Kniver.
She took photos too.
I know the event was enjoyed by all who participated. I will have to stay on through December one year to see it for myself.
This year the Living Nativity event will be held in Granaiola.
This is one of the highlights of the year in Bagni di Lucca. Here are a couple of photos from past events.
Be there on 3rd December if you can.
I wish I was around to see La Villa lit up for Christmas. Fortunately Valerio Ceccarelli was on hand to take some photos of the first night of the lights.
I hope it is a wonderful festive season for everyone.
The tennis courts in La Villa have their winter covers on.
I think it is great that the courts are available all year.
There has been a series of wonderful events for children and their families lately at the theatre in La Villa.
Lots of people attended and had a great time. Well done Wanda!
It is great to see new activities in Bagni di Lucca. It is possible that there will be another series in the new year.
Drop by to see the Nativity scenes.
