Portofino

Such a perfect day

rain 23 °C

On a day that started with a storm, we thought we'd take a look at Portifino. An hour on the train took us to Santa Margherita, then after a fantastic lunch at 'Kicks' restaurant we took a ten minute ferry to the gorgeous village of Portifino. It's known for its celebrity visitors, particularly in the 50s and 60s. Liz and Richard used to come every year, along with Bridget Bardo, so not the place to go shopping unless your funds match theirs. They certainly picked a good spot. It is a perfect little hook of land, any sailors dream anchorage. We settled in at a wine bar on the waterfront under the awnings, in the rain. No wind and quite warm, it was perfect. The rain had keep visitors away, so it was peaceful and pretty. With a couple of glasses of wine and some olives it was one of those afternoons when all the planets have aligned and life is perfect.
