Just returned from 2 weeks in Spoltore

Wonderful weather - a bit hot for the first few days but then perfect for me at about 27 degrees. Managed to do some sketching in graphite and acrylic and hope to work them up later. A new fish restaurant has opened in the village and The Bike Stop is expanding, providing more lovely accommodation for short-term stays in a palazzo at the top of the village.Also checked out two new hilltop towns in the locality. Montepagano which has a little museum and whilst we were there, an art exhibition by Paolo of Spoltore of intriguing sculptures and graphic prints. The second place was Mutinagno which has a 14th century church and wonderful views across the hills to a very blue Adriatic.
