We are fortunate to have an amazing view of Lago d'Averno, the Tyrrenian Sea, Monte Di Procida, and Capri. Lago d'Averno is a volcanic crater lake. The Ancient Romans considered this lake to be the entrance to Hades. It gained it's name from a Greek word meaning "birdless" referring to their belief that birds who flew over the lake dropped dead because of the poisonous fumes it emitted. Today we are lucky that there are no birds that drop dead over the lake and there aren't any poisonous fumes (we hope!).

A lemon tree decorates our yard as well as two small palm trees and an area to grow grapes. We have picked a couple of lemons off of our tree and the landlord sometimes gives us oranges from his orange tree.
Maya loves the new yard and the space! Here you can see her chewing on her bone in the grass.
The weather is gorgeous this time of year... a high in the low 60s with clear sunny days makes us want to sit on our outdoor sofa lounger, drink wine, and look out on the world ahead of us. Life is good.
