We skipped Vernazza to disembark, however pulled in to port twice in the water taxi. We got a good view of Corniglia from sea and the others as well. Porto Venere is our stop to get the tender back to ship. Pronounced ven-er-rey. Going to have a cold frozen margarita with salted rim, and prepare for supper. No idea what it is as last evening we were at the event.
I would love to have a few hours to lay around the pool one day however not sure if that is going to be possible. Must be half way through cruise now. Next two days in area of Florence and may go to Lucca. Then island of Elba and off to Rome for a day, fly to London for overnight and back to Halifax to prepare to go home.
Tanned people sitting and many dozing from the heat of the day, and activities and now the inactivity on the water taxi. A full day of shopping, hiking, seeing, being and likely eating. Exploring and finding new adventures in the out of doors in one of the most photographed and beautiful places on earth.
Rock formations tell the oldest story. Homes more current. Strategically placed on the cliffs and banks seen by water craft. Many it appears are growing vines for their famous wine. It can’t be an easy life for these crafts people. I would not want to live here however I do enjoy the visit.
Wish you were here!
