After a few glasses of wine the 'skippers' found no problem in
leaving their moorings at Aquileia!
|| The morning of culture
had made us hungry for lunch and, true to the excellent organisation
which had become apparent throughout the event, we were not disappointed.
A short walk took us to the Ristorante Fonzari where good food and
wine awaited us.
From Aquileia we made our way back to Grado to prepare for an evening
at the Ristorante Due Rose - for even more eating and drinking!
The weather during the event thus far had been really good, warm
sunshine and blue
|| sky, but during our
evening meal we were treated to a spectacular thunderstorm which
lasted for over an hour. Lightening illuminated the sky and the
rain came down in torrents.
It was quite exciting for the small British contingent to watch
- we're used to seeing rain of course but not accompanied by such
a terrific sound and light show.
