... and rather like an English seaside town, except that the shops sell foccacias and pizza. Our hotel is half a block from the beach but most of the stoney beach areas require you to pay to get in. You can hire a deck chair too, if you pay. We walked to the "old" town but didn't explore very much more. John picked up a paninni for dinner and sat on the balcony and ate it. What a rough life we lead! We have a tour guide and tour of Cinque Terre tomorrow. Let's hope the sea isn't too ...

Being the lapsed Catholic that I claim to be it's humbling to see these works of art and the depth of century's old devotion and faith. And as the rain let up I headed out to the other areas of worship, the higher ...

Locando del Isola Comacino

... cloudy morning warmed up as the mist lifted off lake and the whitecaps died down to flat calm waters. Private polished wooden sport crafts transported the quiet wealthy as ferry boats traversed the lake. The scene unchanged for for years reminiscent of decades past. The current owner of the restaurant is part of the experience. It just goes to show that if you do one thing well and something you love to do, then life is complete. Kissing the girls is just the icing on the ...
