The one thing that you both recommended highly that we didn't do was to take the private boat ride - we did take a lot of ferries (esp. yesterday), & we realize that wasn't the same thing at all as the closer-to-the-shore experience that we would have had. Seems that we ran out of time (you'll find out when you get older that the pace slows a bit!), so.... if you'll forgive us for not taking that advice this trip, we promise to do it next time!
We did nothing today that we couldn't do on foot, so.... no car & no boats. We walked up to Crotto di Pino for lunch - sat outside beneath an olive tree overlooking the lake - the owner couldn't have been nicer - said that his food was "simplice ma buona" - he was true to his word, & we spent our "last afternoon on Lake Como" in a most enjoyable & leisurely fashion.
Thank you again for everything - we'll have nothing but good memories - I'm sure you hear that all the time!!
