My first group of guests left today — driving to the Rome airport at 6:30 am for their flight back to the US. We had a wonderful week and I will miss them all so much!

Spent the morning changing sheets, putting new towels in the bathrooms, and just generally straightening up for the next wave of visitors who will arrive late this afternoon. Jim and Shannon from Atlanta and Judy and Tim from Tehachapie, north of LA.
