Trip to Portofino - Part 3

Incredible so far, isn't it?? The Italians do beautiful so well, lol! A couple people have commented on the weather. It was overcast for much of the day, but it was quite warm. The sun came out about 3 pm and it was simply gorgeous. On to Part 3...
I love these palm trees!

Everyone loves Marilyn!

I love this photo!!!

I was teaching Bella a little biology, showing the barnacles, tiny mussels and algae.
As you can see, she really enjoyed it!
I wish this was my house! It's the perfect color too!!!

Yes, it's really this gorgeous!

The water was quite clear and we could see tons of fish!
Naturally, Bella found dogs!
Human traffic cones!

A pirate ship - Bella approved

San Martino Church
Come back tomorrow for the Part 4 - the conclusion of our trip!

Stunning shots...and I agree...that boat picture should be a poster for Italy tourism...it is gorgous.

I loved seeing the interior of the church. It always amazes me when I see such beautiful artwork and architecture from a time when modern machinery wasn't around. I bet that pipe organ sounds beautiful, too.

That is amazing! So beautiful! So so SO beautiful!

I agree about the color of that house. It's a perfect yellow color. It has to be a perfect house to pull it off.

Now I am longing to live in a more Mediterranean climate.

Loved the fish.

The artwork is simply stunning, and how the art IS architecture.

Love! Thank you for sharing so many wonderful pictures!
