Acqui Terme - A Rainy Day

Our day began with a rainstorm - lots of thunder and lightening and rain, so breakfast was served in the Baurs' lovely new kitchen. What a pleasure it must be to cook there.

On the menu today was:
My usual yogurt & muesli - Freshly baked focaccia - Peach crostata - Local goat cheese - Fresh strawberries, pears & peaches - Proscuitto -Tomatoes with olive oil, balsamic & marjoram - Fresh fruit juice drink created by Micha - Coffee too.

These are our neighbors in the other room at Baur B&B - Joe and Judy, who are also from Southern California. Joe read my blog and noticed that we were going to be at the B&B the same week, so we introduced ourselves by email before we even arrived.

We took a ride into Acqui to scout out the location of tonight's restaurant, I Caffi. Several of our Slow Travel friends have dined there and raved about it, so it is our one splurge dinner of this trip.

Looks like a fabulous breakfast!

Looks so delicious! How cool that you "met" your neighbors via your blog.

Enjoy!

I am seriously jealous looking at all of these fantastic breakfasts. My morning cereal is pretty pitiful after looking at these fantastic spreads!

I really enjoyed reading about your trip!

I am leaving for my latest trip in 9 days.

Another 5 week trip (our fifth together since 2001) with my sister.

This will be my 9th trip to Italy.

I last went with my son in October 07.

We start in Venice, then go to Santa Margherita Ligure, then San Gimignano, Sorrento and end in Rome for 3 nights.

I smiled a bit at this post.

It is nice to know that we were not the only guests who brought rain to Acqui terme.

Is Diana telling you it never rains there? I'm not sure I believe her any longer! LOL
