A look at my apartment on the coast south of Tarquinia. I’m under a canopy of pine trees. They have tall trunks and the pine needles start about 50 feet up. The pine cones are the size of softballs; so far, my tent has only been hit twice. The sunlight in the photo is the sea. Rome is 82 kilometers to the south. I’m going to stay here for the day and explore the ancient town which was built before the Romans.
