Postcards #13: At the seaside with friends

During our (much too) short stay in Italy, we had the pleasure to spend a lovely day in a small seaside town with some dear friends.  We started the travel early in the morning, had breakfast at a bar... enjoyed the lovely mountain views on the way and the beautiful town... ate a delicious lunch and many ice creams... visited a small botanical garden... and admired the wonderful sea views.

I hope you will enjoy the photos!

Grazie, carissimi M. e F.,

per la splendida giornata

passata assieme a voi!

  16. Beautiful vistas from Italy Sara - and palm trees and bamboo! This is a perfect example of what I would photograph too on a trip with friends - no people just plants and views to remember. :-) Fabulous capture of the waves crashing against the rocks and some pretty pink flowers.
    Thank you as always for linking to Mosaic Monday.

  17. Beautiful! When I went to Italy in 2007, I was obsessed with their hot chocolates and gelato. Hee!

  18. Sara I love that you are sharing your time in Italy...one of my favorite breakfasts in Italy was coffee with warmed milk and a chocolate croissant....mmmmm! Such a beautiful trip. I am now thinking how I can get back to Italy again...perhaps for our 20th anniversary in 2 years.

  19. Thank you for taking me along on this wonderful trip! So lovely!

  20. I always these travelogues because they show places that I will probably never see and they show places off the beaten track and things that we all might be interested.
