As I walked the streets of Florence today, I was amazed at the wonderful weather we're having. For the past two years, Dave and I have missed out on being in Florence in October. And, now I see that we probably missed the best month ever to be visiting Florence! The mornings are a little brisk, so we still need to wear a light sweater, but by lunchtime, the sun is shining brightly and it feels great to be outside. It's not until the evening when the sun goes down that we need a sweater again. There's not a cloud in the sky and the winds are quite light, so it is simply wonderful!
I walked around town a little bit, mostly to window shop, and made it to Palazzo Vecchio where there were quite a few tourists enjoying the beautiful sights.
In the past two years, we have gone to the US in October and came back in November. The first year, I had to buy a scarf and gloves almost immediately after arriving back. And, last year even though I was more prepared, I didn't expect the weather to be so cold. I talked to a few of my friends who have said that this weather will only last a few more weeks and supposedly it's going to be cold by November.
So, this year I am thankful that we are here in October to enjoy such perfect weather. If only we could have a few more months like this one!
