Keeping Busy

Well I have been doing all kind of things around the house to keep busy. We have been having some nice weather, so David and I took advantage of it. David takes very good care of the lawn. We have found one big difference is that it needs to be mowed once a week. In Alaska it was every two weeks to a month depending on the rain.

Lake Garda

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.
