Bocce Ball
Went to the beach today and spotted a game of Bocce:)

Bocce (or Bocci, or Boccie)[1][2][3][4][5], is a precision sport belonging to the boules sport family, closely related to bowls and pétanque with a common ancestry from ancient games played in the Roman Empire. Developed into its present form in Italy (where it is called Bocce, the plural of the italian word boccia which means "bowl"), it is played around Europe and also in overseas countries that have received Italian migrants, including Australia, North America and South America (where it is known as bochas; "bolas criollas" in Venezuela), initially amongst the migrants themselves but slowly becoming more popular with their descendants and the wider community. The game is also well-known in Serbia as boćanje (боћање) and in Croatia as boćanje, bućanje, o

wow, springtime in Italy! I can't recall, though, ever having seen it played there (or maybe I mistook it for petanque)... nice shot (from both of you)
