Today is May 17th and the difference from yesterday is bigger than one would think. Yesterday I added a new year to my life and today I immediately hit the door jackpot.
With my visiting parents we went to a new location, an old salt-works town Saline di Tarquinia. It is not fully abandoned, some houses are restored and all wear a distinctive shiny coat of glory days long gone but not forgotten.
I was instantly in love with the town. That was even before I found not two, not three, not five but seven green doors, in a row, and a building from 1925 that looks like a lighthouse. The history of this place must be fascinating but I have no time for it now.
One of two inhabitants who seemed related and a bit forlorn stole my heart. And in the winter they have flamingos too.
Second part with an abandoned factory (which I didn’t enter) will follow one of the coming Thursdays.
I’ll be busy for a while longer but I’m never far. Enjoy your weekend.
