Sunny Sunday.

After a lazy start we bought tickets for the boat.

The boat is used as a bus by the locals.

First stop, the next village along Vernazza..Yes the one with the unfriendly coastal walk.

Corniglia is the only village inaccessable by the boat, as it has no harbour, it can only be reached by the train followed by a grueling 377 stone steps  & 14 ramps.

Manarola the next pretty village along.

Final stopfor us Riomaggiore, a quick change onto the return boat.

The journey back was without most of the stops, but was incredibly bouncy.

This is my thank F*%!k thats over face!

Then to the beach right outside our hotel , we hired an umbrella and 2 sun loungers for the day & took several dips, Ian swam out to the rocks that created the lagoon.

This is my thoughtful face.

Dinner at Bar Davi Monterossa da mare.. Another first for Ian, Risotto!

Goodnight dear reader.. not many more blog days to go..very sad : ( xx
