Hike 2:00:00  5.0 mi (24:00 / mi)
Past Santa Croce, stopping by my old school to show Rhonda, closed for the holidays, but Alberto, one of the owners was there, very gracious, then to the wall across the Arno and up along the wall to the fortress, and then between villas with high walls to Viale Galileo. Thought we would turn right to Porta Romana, but decided to go left to San Miniato. We could see the huge gardens behind the villas from up on the Viale. While we were there it started to sprinkle, so instead of Porta Romana we headed back toward town, crossing at Ponte San Niccolò and heading to Piazza Beccaria and then home. All this walking is definitely improving things. I had the watch today and saw that it was 5 miles, which makes me think that an average day for us has been something over 10.
