A stormy day at the lake found me wandering down tiny plank avenues, watching coot feed their young with the grasses that grow in their watery underworld.



They hid between the boats and called to one another...



...lost and separated among barques when they would do better to stick together in this giant world.



If you hear me chirping, do come quickly.

Ciao Allison....Thanks so much for stepping in my Tuscany, I loved your visit!!

You have got a wonderful blog, all my compliments!

Oh, yes, I probably could give you some hints for your october-vacations on the Etruscan Coast, but you should tell me what kind of vacations, where you would like to stay..: Agritourismo, privat home, hotel etc.,!!!!

Have a great weekend!

ciao ciao elvira
