Mini journal with short narratives:

One of the last images taken of San Marino as we were getting ready to depart this fascinating Republic.

   
Our last view of San Marino before traveling to our next destination to Florence, in the province of Tuscany. Nearly a 6 hour drive, maybe more with traffic we encountered in Florence.  I road with Anthony and Holger in the In Jurgen's Maserati.

   

 

We came to our destination. Resting in the hill north of Florence the ancient farm houses of Coiano offer an oasis of tranquility. We stayed in a restored 15th century renovated farm house. The country mountain roads from San Marino to Florence were very beautiful, they reminded us of  the mountains in West Virginia so much.
   

 

The morning of our departure, this is at the lower end of the farmhouse.

   

 

Our host, "Donatella" very graciously provided dinner from 8:30 PM to 11 PM in the main house of the bed and breakfast.
   

 

Packing up and getting ready to move on to the next adventure.
   

 

We left around noon and came to a nearby town for coffee. Later we moved down the road to higher ground to view the race cars of the Mille Miglia.
   

 

A great vantage point to observe the cars of the Mille Miglia.
   

 

A view from Dirks Mercedes while joining in the Mille Miglia as it traveled to Bologna.
   

 

722 with Sterling Moss slows down and give him a thumbs up!
