Waking from the cozyness of my bed, I stumble to the window this January morning, throw on some jogging pants, then head outside to catch on video the view which I just have to share with you.
Back in the kitchen I upload the video to YouTube and get increasingly frustrated with the channel over embedding parameters. I click the option to prevent showing of suggestions at the end of the video. In this post I want to show only this one video. I re-paste the link into my blog, check a preview, and to my annoyance see suggestions for more videos to watch. Back and forth YouTube, Blog, YouTube click, click, click and still I do not manage to achieve what I desire. Technology moves at such a pace that as soon as I have learnt the way round an app they change the format. My ignorance is seemingly never ending.
Moving on and smiling, for as the Moka bubbles, I am sitting at my kitchen window, the aroma of arabica fills the room as the sun weakly warms my workstation. I love the morning glory mist in the valley. Often seen under grey skies in winter it is at its very best in spring and fall. These are the months when mist literally rises and falls under the azure sky. One wakes early to crisp clear blue sky as Bellaugello sits on a cushion of dense mist as can be seen on our website. The effect is of flying first above fluffy clouds. I adore how, like medieval rockets the ancient abbey towers that surround us at Bellaugello Gay Guest House reveal themselves, then sink back into the mist. Now you see me now you don’t, a natural game of hide and seek. As the sun warms seemingly euphoric wispy strands of mist rise and disappear, breaking free of the valley bottom, it is utterly magical. Slowly the mist disperses, by 10:30 it is fully gone. These are mornings when we dither over serving breakfasts on the terrace. At 7am the table is still damp and enshrouded in mist. We have to judge if the guys are early or late breakfasters, for the mornings are so glorious we want to share the glory and magic with our guests.
Set a time lapse on your cell phone and one can see dancing clouds, racing mist and golden sunrises.
Nature is so beautiful, here at Bellaugello one has time, space and peace to fully appreciate it.
