Fiume Veneto

Il Bora has calmed to a normal 10-20 kph wind, and daytime temps are generally slightly higher than 0°C.  It's time to begin training for Spring.  Decided to try a flat ride, this time to the southeast.  Down to Cordenons then east to Zoppola, where I crossed SS13 and headed west to Fiume Veneto.  The first frazione of Fiume Veneto I encountered was Pescincanna, along the river Fiume.  A few more km and I was in Fiume Veneto proper.  I then headed down to another frazione Bannia.  Each had a nice church and bell tower so I took some pictures.

I was doing good heading back toward Zoppola then went astray.  Not a total loss though because I found a shortcut through Murlis.  Have to use that next time.  The road returns to Cordenons  crossing the Magredi nature preserve.  This is a beautiful area if you are ever near San Quirino or Cordenons.
