Well I guess the vacation or holiday whatever you choose to call it is over now. We had to start getting back to normal. Went grocery shopping, since there was not much in the house. Started washing the clothes from the trip with the help of my sweet husband. Decided what to cook for supper because the two men here think they should be fed. Started working on articles for which I have a tons of ideas for many stories. Starting with the brewery in Girdwood because I told them I would write theirs when I got home.
Dusty got the no running water in the camper problem fixed. He also figured out why we had no turn signals or brake lights which we found out while camping. It was a fuse under the hood, so that was an easy fix.
I have got the packages ready to mail outside or the lower 48 other people would say, with things I brought back for my family down there.
Supper is almost done and the boys went to look at a used generator for the camper. Things are looking good. Oh damn, I forgot about the laundry again. Guess I better go get the stuff out of the dryer and put the last load in the dryer.
Well clothes are dry and next load in to dry. Boys came home with generator in hand which David was very happy with. Supper is going to be served now and we can settle in for the night. Hopefully, a movie to relax by.
We checked out of our hotel in Padua and headed for Milan. We stopped for lunch at the southern end of Lake Garda where we viewed the Alps and the Dolomite Mountains. Lake Garda is the largest lake in Italy. We had lunch in the historical center of Sirmione at Modi Restaurant. We were all wondering what kind of white meat or chicken it would be this time. To our great surprise it was the most wonderful salmon trout. The restaurant was so nice and breezy sitting outside, instead of hot and stuffy like all the other places.
We kept seeing these huge gelato’s that people were carrying so we went on the hunt for the biggest ones we had ever seen. After wandering around a bit, the chorus went down by the lake and sang the Alaska Flag Song. It was so cool to see all the people gathering around and taking photos of them.
After our tour and all our other fun in Venice the Chorus sang mass at the Basillica. As we stood outside waiting to go in Jonathon had bought a guitar and started playing. The whole chorus started singing Lean On Me. People were stopping to take photos of everyone. It was really fun. The chorus got dressed in the crypt. As David leaned against a wall to put his socks on the wall was crumbling. I was not allowed to take photos in there but I did get a couple and one of the church before I found out there were no photos allowed. David thought the San Marco has to be one of the most spectacular building in the world.
