Stairs, Rain & Cliffs

Am I the only one who thinks we need an "oh my!" after that?  It was definitely an "oh my" kind of day.  I was all excited about the whole posting from my phone and then guess what?  My phone completely breaks.  Apparently I need a new SIM card.  Well then...  Fast forward to mid-day.  We went out to Cinque Terre today.  I had been there several years before but was not able to hike all five towns.  So I was determined to do it this time.  When we arrived, we found out the trail was closed.  Which meant it was basically at your own risk.  We started off on the first trail.  The sun was shining and the views were gorgeous!  The trail was a lot of ups and downs.  Fast forward again and yes it definitely was at your own risk and I found out the hard way as I fell.  My guardian angels were working overtime as I ended up with a wrenched, pulled, strained knee (take your pick) and a few scratches.  I think now I have fallen (or just about fallen) in pretty much every country I have visited.  I am just that talented (or clumsy).  It could have been much worse.  My first thought was - how is this going to impact my Princess Half Marathon training??  We'll just have to play it by ear and see.  But for now I'm taking it easy.

In other more exciting news, after a full day of no margherita pizza I had mushroom pizza for lunch and margherita pizza for dinner.  Yum!!

Tomorrow it is off to Siena.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

If you can just stop falling down before February I think you'll be okay for the Princess 1/2! ;)

The image I had of you hiking and falling was you sliding on a steep surface - like at Crater Lake. Phew - glad you made it out of my imaginary crater.

So jealous of the pizza. Yum yum yum!!!

Have a great Thanksgiving!
