... car drivers to drive. Luckily he drove well as once we left the autostrada, it was very, very windy to get to our hotel. Also Wendy is probably almost cured of her fear of tunnels as we lost count of how many we went through in the almost 90 minutes it took to get to Monterosso. We checked in at Hotel Palme, checked out our fourth storey room with sea view and balcony and went for a quick orientation walk.

First stop is to get a rain jacket and an umbrella, More stuff ...

... 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 ...
