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.

You know, I THOUGHT I was jealous about Venice... but Portofino? Divine... Ever been to Porto Venere (not sure of spelling) but had the BEST pippi spaghetti there. Still dream about it to this day...

Looks like you are having a wonderful time. I mean what wouldn't be wonderful being in Italy but Venice and Portofino....Sigh....

Your turn to bring back wonderful memories for me :) I need to go all the way to the lighthouse next time.

Portofino looks SO beautiful! We visited a tiny church about halfway up the hill - I don't know the name of it though.

Have a great time (how could you not)!

What a gorgeous place! It's great that you are able to travel with your sister :) My sister (and mom) and I are currently dreaming of a return to Italy...hoping maybe next year for Mom's 70th birthday.

It looks ever so much more sophisticated than "Writing Studio and Bait Shop, Torch Lake."
