Sniffing out four noses

Something and nothing today. A stop in the port of Livorno, a quick couple of hours in town, a bit of walking, a bit of shopping and a bit of sight-seeing. Most interesting aspect was the monument at the sea end.

It remembers the victory of the soldiers of Livorno over the pirates in the 18th century. There are four pirates shackled and it is apparently a sign of great luck to come for anyone who can find the one spot from which all four noses of the pirates are visible. I think I found it, though I would need to be about a foot taller.
Cooler today, though quite close in the shade and warm in the sun. Low twenties, so still pleasant enough……..

Trip to Rome tomorrow.
