      ... did get wonderful views of the coast and as you walked further away from the village we had a fantastic view of how beautiful and colourful the villages are perched on the coast. It was a little overcast so the colours were not as bright as they could have been on a clear day, and due to the weather even our pictures do not do the colours justice.
