san giovanni valdarno, tuscany

Secluded in the heart of Tuscany, we found some pretty remote and incredibly beautiful villages to explore.

It's really something to watch a car squeeze down those alleys every once in awhile.

We were fascinated by fruit trees growing everywhere. No where in particular. Just everywhere.

Christian used his super human jump skills to give us all a taste of the local apricots.

Still warm, we all deemed them as close as one can get to literally tasting sunshine.

The way those village towns cling to cliffs leaves spectacular views.

We beat the heat by exploring some streams for wading that Francesco had heard of.

True to Linford form, we discovered a waterfall with a deep swimming hole to jump off of.

And spent the afternoon jumping and jumping.

Look at all that color!

The best gelato in all of Italy is a constant debate. Francesco took us to the shop of a friend and I have to say it's the best I've ever had.

True perfection.

Wandering some more picturesque towns.

Found a little house for sale. I'll take this one.

These little villages are riddled with passageways that go under bringing us out onto colorful streets.

Tired from our day of exploring, we returned home to another great dinner produced by Francesco and Julie.

I'm afraid I could get used to this really fast.
