The Sunday Traveler~Italy, Part 8~Portofino 2

Can you imagine? A warm sunny day in Portofino, looking out in stunned silence at the beauty of the Ligurian Sea. And now, eighteen years later, I look at the photos as I finally upload them onto my digital files, and stare again in stunned silence that I ever stood there looking out at these scenes with my own eyes.

I had walked up a path from the piazetta towards a castle/fortress museum, looking out, lingering along the guardrail looking down as a motorboat pulled up, andΒ  a long distance flirtation began with hand waves and shouts in Italian from the guy on board… that I didn’t understand. Ah, the stuff of novels. You can bet I’ve remembered this over the years with a smile. But I digress, I had walked up from the little center of town, the piazetta, that scene you see in all the travel guides

Picture perfect it is.

A whole day spent here walking all over, eating gelato and I don’t remember anything else.

All the important scenes and memories of this Italian paradise etched in my mind.

Such beauty in this world to remember.

    To think, you could have started an Italian romance, and perhaps settled in happy repose in some quaint Italian villa like Portofino for the rest of your days.

    Beautiful place..I smiled at the eating gelatin all day and I remember nothing else..I seemed to have had a similar experience in Rome. I wondered around ruins and had fantastic art and culture all around me, but I remember eating gelato, thinking it was the best thing ever it’s my first recollection of the place
