Last Sunday was a lovely sunny morning so we decided to spend the morning down at the lake, have a coffee, take a stroll and watch the Club 500 Montefiascone Car Rally that was passing through, with a checkpoint at the Borgo del Pescatori. My photos will tell the story of our morning.
Those of you familiar with Marta either virtually through reading this blog for awhile or in reality will notice that the water level in the lake is lower than ever! Even with the little recent rainfall we have had there are beaches appearing where we personally have never seen them before. It is worrying it looks like we are going to need a very wet winter to restore levels.
Then the cars started arriving, at the checkpoint.
Here are a few of my favourite cars!
After watching the rally cars pass through we continued our walk and headed home.

My slideshow presentation of the the car rally and our walk is about five minutes long, so if you do not have time to view now, do call back and do so another time.
Alternatively if you are unable to view the slideshow, ( I know some of my readers have slow internet connections that do not give them the choice of doing so) you may view the photos via My Flickr account in the album entitled Sunday Morning in Marta - Lakeside
The following paragraph will explain why the cars were in Marta on Sunday morning.
F-EST! EST! EST!
Roads & Word
Vintage Cars and Cultural Events
Commemoration of the circuit of Lake Bolsena F- Est! Est! Est! Roads and Words was organised by Club 500 Montefiascone
under the patronage of the Municipality of Montefiascone, in collaboration with the Cultural Association "TusciaE20", ACI and Veteran Car Club of Viterbo.
It was proposed to implement a weekend that united culture and passion for motoring, through the presentation of books and the presence of historic cars of prestige, with the intention of promoting the history, monuments, places and products Montefiascone and Tuscia.
If you are interested in more information about the event follow the link to New Tuscia or the Facebook Page for the Est Est Est 500 Club in Montefiascone. Club 500 Montefiascone
I am going to be busy with other projects over the winter so I will not be posting anything like as often here as I did during the summer months. Also see what I had to say previously here, about not wanting to repeat posts. I am not deserting you and hopefully will be keeping the Facebook Page updated for those of you that would like to keep in touch there.
Otherwise I hope to be back with a post or two during the latter part of October.
