With luggage finally,
we are off!
We board the train
headed to Santa Margarita Portafino, Italy.
We pass through Italy west towards the coast.
A cool site is the mountains of Carrara - the white is not snow,
but the most quarried marble in the world -
-as popular today as it was centuries ago.
We finally SEE the Ligurian SEA!
Dan is so happy to be here.
Santa Margarita is a picturesque city
on the Mediterranean.
What do we do first?
While of course,
we head to a floating restaurant
for seafood and spirits!
We stalk the wealthy yacht owners on the pier, and are entertained by their "garbage".
We tour the city as the sun is setting.
The architecture is unique.
We arrive at our boutique hotel, which we adore!
Our balcony view
We meet Dan and Pam in the lobby,
to play cards,
(best martini ever)
and laugh more!
I am sure I won this hand.
