Apart from making everything grow and look gorgeous, rain has other benefits.
There is plenty of water in the river for the rafters.
If we could just organise the rain to fall between midnight and 4.00am a couple of nights a week it would be excellent.
On Sunday the local raft groups raced each other from Chifenti, where the Lima River meets the Serchio River, to the gorgeous Ponte della Maddelena.
I missed the race, but Montefegatesi photographer David Bonaventura was on hand to get get some great photos.
It looked like a fun day despite the less than perfect weather. I think the boys in the white raft won.
Bagni di Lucca has an excellent new addition…and adventure park on the Lima River at Scesta near Cocciglia…on the Brennero road towards Abetone. It is called Canyon Park.
Access is from the free car park at the Campo Sportivo via a short track. It is the first Adventure Park to be set up within a canyon.
There is a zip line, high wire suspension bridge and more. It is also possible to go rafting on the river. Take a look as these fabulous photos taken by Ruggero Mengoni.
Doesn’t this look like great fun?? Have you been yet? I would love to hear all about it.
