there's a beautiful path on quarìn mountain in friuli. if you climb it up to the top you'll find a renaissance style church (st anna) and the ruins of an ancient castle. the view over the village of cormons, in the isonzo valley, is amazing from the top. the horizon spaces until the sea of grado in the adriatic. due to this amazing visibility, the mountain was used as a crucial sentinel point during ww1.

it's where we went yesterday. we spent a lovely sunday with some of alice's peers and their parents in an agro-farm first, and then we took a walk through the mountain. it was unexpected, these are places you don't get to know unless some locals guide you to, and one of the guys was orginary from cormons. lovely!
the kids loved it. they're always happier when they can play outside. we adults enoyed it too. the area is very green, i captured the mature signs of spring and was happy with the result.

too bad it's monday now, there're the usual chores to accomplish and nothing new to exlpore. monday sucks!
