Bastet’s Haiga Monday Challenge – A Spring Morning – April 11, 2016


Good morning!

As I mentioned on my former post, yesterday I went walking with the city of Arco.  This is a yearly event.  For a chosen charity each year people gather together to either walk (a five and a half kilometre itinerary) or run (a twelve kilometre itinerary) together.  Here are a couple of photos of the event.

And now for today’s prompt:

A Spring Morning


And here’s my example:

Monochrome Monday – April 4, 2016

Yesterday I took a bike trip to visit with a friend at her family’s  “agritour” in Dro, not far from Arco.  Unfortunately I got distracted and took only a couple of photographs, which is really a shame because there are many things to snap, including a delightful ginger cat named Heidi … but I plan to return soon!



Sunday Walk – March 9, 2014

The other day was a brilliant day of warmth and sunshine, so I decided to try to walk up to the Castle and to the Renghera…or the second tower:

The Castle from Arco

The Castle from Arco

Last year I showed you the walk up on another Sunday Walk last June.

As I got nearer the castle, I decided to take a break near a fountain and then do the last legs of the walk through the olive grove avoiding the paved path:

This took me pretty close to the approach:

Finally the Castle proper…I actually took oodles of photos, so here I have to decide which ones to show for today…not easy!  But we’ll start from the lawn and go up to the Renghera, which was where a large bell used to be housed, and was used to call people to  harvest or into the castle if an enemy was approaching.  The valley below the Renghera is named after our river, Sarca and it is known as the Lower Sarca vally

Hope you enjoyed this bit of a walk up to the highest tower of Arco’s Castle!

Have a great Sunday, Bastet!

Sunday Walk

Hello Everyone!

Today is not a day for a walk…again.  However, during the week we did have a good day, and I took some photos as I walked along the first leg of the bike/pedestrian path that leads to Torbole, and then on to Riva del Garda.  The last 2 pictures are of Riva and were taken a couple of weeks ago during the break in the rain…

A Sunday Walk in Photographs: September 22, 2013

The last days of tourists for us here in Riva del Garda.  The German’s have gone home for the most part and the British have arrived!  Today we’re going to just have a peek at a group of young tourists learning how to wind surf…and a few people on the shore.

Hope you enjoy our Sunday Walk!

A Sunday Walk: 15 September 2013

Today, we’ll just take a short walk down a country path. The first shot is Arco from the beginning of a short cut through vineyards from Bolognano.  I’ll take you under the Arco’s Castle. In the future we’ll walk through Arco it’self and maybe get all the way up to the Castle!  I hope you enjoy it!
