Castle Brown, Portofino

We had a great time walking up to Castle Brown above Portofino. We were last here in October '06.

And... we also walked clear around to the lighthouse. This is my sister in front of it.

Oh, and we bought handbags in Portofino.

OK, would you believe THIS is our hire car?

My sister with the convertible Beamer... we are on the Italian Riviera at magnificent Santa Margherita Ligure.

We are having a ball! Had cappuccino in Rapallo, in Camogli and in Portofino. Oh my, it's a hard life.

Here is the Hummer.

Arrival in Venice

My sister at Piazza San Marco first thing in the morning.

Early morning mist near Campo Santa Maria Formosa.

Oh dear, the grocery boat for the supermarket sank and blocked the canal for ages!
