I love the beautiful little water source between Rufina and Diacetto, as you can see from the pictures below. I didn't take a picture of the water spigot itself, but the views from there. It is different from most of the water fountains here, in that it is simply a pipe coming out of an old stone wall with a basin below with the date 1830 cut into the stone basin. Anyway, tasty water, cool, and refreshing. Great ride and happy to have found the motivation to get out. 71.1 kilometers in 3:32 to average a slow 20.2 kph with 1294 meters climbed, almost all that climbing in the first 40 k. Ciao!
Vineyards, olive groves, and a fire burning the slash from lots
of olive tree trimming that is going on right now in the countryside.
Looking at the beautiful road ahead in Fornello.
The view back toward the windmill from the fountain between Rufina
and Diacetto. One of my favorites, it is not actually a fountain but a
spout coming out of an old stone wall from a spring somewhere above.
The little house and garden next to the super cool fountain on
the way to Diacetto.
