This mural depicts life in the community. pretty powerful.
twilight in the land of stairs
Just a well lit front door to a home.
We have started the hike along the coast to each of the villages now.
One of many tunnels to take you beneath the mountains in spots.
Real fishermen heading out in the morning.
The village on Manarola, the neighbour to Riomaggorie where we were staying.
Michelle on a new suspended bridge. the old one recently got nuked by a landslide from the impossibly steep cliffs directly beside and uphill.
from the hiking path you had to take this staircase up to get to Corniglia.
Abandoned and beautiful.
Labels make the bottle.
I thought this was just disturbing enough.
Tourists were thowing pieces of bread out. the gulls would dive and chase the bread hundreds of feet towards the ocean. 1 out of 5 would get some more or less.
Terraced plots were the dominant feature of the landscape.
Looking down to Vernazza. particularly beautiful and massivly overcrowded.
Top left is a large Clay oven. crazy.
kitty and blue boats.
Greater Metro Verazza.
Leaving Verazza now.
I'm really not sure what this meant either.
Wild/naturally growing Cactus were very unexpected.
Gaining and losing altitude was the theme of the day.
end of the trail ahead in Monterosso.
This was the largest and busiest of the 5 villages. Very scenic though.
An ancient "temple" but not a church. to pray for lost souls on the sea. a totally erie place to say the least. it was being restored.
