Cogli la bellezza ovunque!


Another sunny day today. Temperatures have dropped, but the sun is transmitting a pleasant warmth!

Close encounter between Cocker spaniels...

Together with @comb, @anamari and their dog Marilù we walked from Santa Margherita Ligure to Portofino, then on to the lighthouse, passing the church of San Giorgio and its beautiful cemetery.

Santa Margherita Ligure was frequented by many people, many of whom - like us - were walking with their four-legged friends.

The route from Santa Margherita to Portofino is about five kilometres long and the road skirts the magnificent scenery of the Gulf of Tigullio.

I have always been fascinated by this tree, an expression of the will to grow in such an impervious place as a rocky stacks: for me, it is a true wonder!

On the way we saw this woman trying to dive into the sea: despite many attempts, she didn't make it! 😁

The coast is very winding and, consequently, the road is a continuous in and out and often you can admire colorful houses near the sea...

Before Portofino

Walk and walk, we have arrived in Portofino!

Due to the pLandemic situation and the fact that today is Sunday, there was not even a bar open, not to mention the closed and barred shops.

As a result, the village was semi-deserted: we met no more than a dozen people!

Very beautiful the church of San Giorgio, on the way to the lighthouse...

The area is always full of Seagulls, who delighted us with their aerial evolutions and their song... a bit shrill, but very characteristic! 😉

I would have liked to watch the sunset from the lighthouse, but we were all pretty cold.

So I took these photos against the light, with the interesting shimmer on the sea....

To return to Portofino, we went down the steps leading directly to the quay in front of the village: the spectacle of coloured houses is very characteristic!

Ita 🇮🇹

Oggi un'altra giornata di sole. Le temperature sono calate, ma il sole trasmette un piacevole tepore!

Assieme a @comb, @anamari e la loro cagnolina Marilù ci siamo incamminati da Santa Margherita Ligure a Portofino, per poi proseguire fino al faro, passando per la chiesa di San Giorgio e il suo bel cimitero.

Santa Margherita Ligure era frequentata da molte persone, molte delle quali - come noi - erano a passeggio con il loro amico a quattro zampe.

Incontro ravvicinato tra Cocker spaniel...

Il percorso da Santa Margherita a Portofino è lungo circa cinque chilometri e la strada costeggia il magnifico scenario del golfo del Tigullio.

Mi ha sempre affascinato questo albero, espressione di volontà di crescere in posto impervio come un faraglione di roccia: per me, è una autentica meraviglia!

Albero su faraglione...

Lungo la strada abbiamo assistito al tentativo di questa donna di tuffarsi in mare: nonostante i numerosi tentativi, non ce l'ha fatta! 😁

Tentativo di bagno in mareNiente da fare: "in acqua non mi tuffo"

La costa è molto tortuosa e, di conseguenza, la strada è un continuo entrare e uscire e spesso si possono ammirare variopinte abitazioni a ridosso del mare...

Cammina e cammina, siamo arrivati a Portofino!

Complice la situazione pLandemica e il fatto che oggi è domenica, non c'era neppure un bar aperto, per non parlare dei negozi chiusi sbarrati.

Di conseguenza, il paese era semi-deserto: abbiamo incontrato si e no una decina di persone!

Portofino

Molto bella la chiesa di San Giorgio, sul percorso per raggiungere il faro...

La chiesa, pure lei, era chiusa sbarrata... ma il piccolo cimitero retrostante, era aperto e ho scattato qualche foto...

La zona è sempre piena di Gabbiani, che ci hanno allietato con le loro evoluzioni aeree e il loro canto... un po' stridente, ma molto caratteristico! 😉

Avrei voluto assistere al tramonto dal faro, ma eravamo tutti piuttosto infreddoliti.

Quindi ho scattato queste foto in controluce, con l'interessante luccichio sul mare...

Per tornare a Portofino, siamo scesi dalla scalinata che porta direttamente sulla banchisa antistante al paese: lo spettacolo di case colorate è molto caratteristico!

Grazie per avermi dedicato il tuo tempo!

Qualsiasi tuo commento, è sempre molto gradito!

Ci si rilegge domani? 🙏

Un caro abbraccio! 🤗
