Hit The Road, Giacomo!

Thursday, December 22nd, was our first full day in Rome. Beautiful, sunny weather and mild temperatures meant, at least for me, that a jacket was not needed. I opted for "Ruby Sunshine" - that's what I named my "look" that day. Yes...we often name our looks for the day...

...what about it?!?!?

No...Mrs. TBF did not name her look that day.

After getting fueled up at the breakfast buffet, we hit the road. First, we walked to the Spanish Steps (not far from our hotel). Then, we walked toward Piazza del Popolo; where we checked out a really old church, soaked up some rays on a bench, and fought off the beggars that are the bane of my vacation existence ("Do NOT touch 'Ruby Sunshine' with your dirty hands while holding the doll you are pretending is a baby!").

We walked along the Tiber and made our way toward the Vatican. Along the way, we stopped in front of Castel Sant'Angelo for a self portrait. Please note how Ruby Sunshine picks up the color of Mrs. TBF's sweater. Yes, it was planned...

...what about it?!?!?

What does Mrs TBF say? But I'd concur, shave it. ;-)
