Does this look like a spring day to you? I am sure it doesn’t.
Neither it did for me… it was an incredibly chilly day, with a cold wind blowing from the sea… and clouds galloping in the sky! April can be that way, sometimes.
In the above picture I am walking on the deserted beach of Porto Recanati, the day after Easter. We Italians call it Pasquetta, and it’s a day for walking and staying outside, partly to get rid of the overeating at the Easter lunch, partly just enjoying the spring.
I had been visiting my relatives in Ancona (the town of the beautiful little market, where I went last saturday and of which I will tell you in the next post), and on the Pasquetta day we travelled to Recanati (Giacomo Leopardi’s home town) and Porto Recanati. This last village is a typical Italian one, with rows of small houses along a boardwalk and the beach just after… it’s easy to imagine yourself going out in the morning with just the swimsuit, flip flops and a beachtowel on your shoulder…
It was cold and beautiful to walk on the beach, and I was very glad I had my coat on, and that I had taken my Borsalino with me.
Thank you to my friend and sister-in-law Carlotta who took the picture. And you can see that I still am the most smiling blogger of the whole web!
ps I think you recognize the coat from a couple of posts ago, and the Borsalino from one of my first posts! As for the Converse (brown leather, very neat I think), again you have seen them in the post How to be chic without a pair of Louboutin. In Milano.
