Pranzo all'Isola


Yesterday we decided at the last minute that we wanted to have lunch, pranzo, at Lago Trasimeno, the lake fifteen minutes from us. We jumped in the car and sped to the lake hoping that we were not going to be too late to eat in a restaurant. As some of you may know, lunch time around here is one o'clock...if you arrive later than that, you run the risk of them telling you the kitchen is closed!


On the way there, we had the bright idea of calling a friend to take us on his small pontoon boat to the island, Isola Maggiore, in the middle of the lake. To our surprise, he was at the dock already waiting for us when we arrived.


The lake was beautifully calm, the perfect time to cruise around.


I adore going to this place...it feels like you have entered another world...even if just for lunch. Life is simple, slow and dares you to daydream the day away.


Ahh...inspiration heaven! A little break by the lake...just what I needed.
