September 2018 – This was the reason we had come to Italy, to see the costal towns and villages of the Italian Riviera. The wonderful colours of the houses, that look like they could tumble into the water at any given moment. The sun, although in this photo it does look like we were on the verge of a downpour, soon burnt off the cloud and we were in for another very hot sunny day. We had finished looking at a couple of churches on route to the harbour, and husband mentioned a boat trip, with a couple of things that I might get excited about….. well that could mean a lighthouse if we were going out along the coast, and the other, well that had me guessing 🙂 But for the moment, this was our walk down to the boat and the start of our trip along the coast. Next post, a treat for me 🙂

I never tire of seeing photographs from Portofino! It is a beautiful place and we visited often when we were living “next door” in Genoa. Thanks for sharing, Lynne! Marcus
Thank you Marcus, I was really surprised as I thought it would be over touristy, but it wasn’t, as you say it’s beautiful 🙂 Glad the photos bring back happy memories and you should recognise some more places that I am going to post about 🙂 Lynne
I love those houses! They are so colorful 🙂
Lots more to come, I had a lovely time taking photos 🙂
Ah, an area I had always intended to visit, but it wouldn’t be possible any more with steep climbs up those streets 😟😥
Yes those climbs are steep, something that I found difficult with my cold, and I think even without my cold 🙂 Sorry you never got to visit.
Beautiful photos and colourful houses, what a marvellous place for a holiday. 🙂
It was a lovely place, but a little too hot for me, you would be more use to it 🙂
I may be more used to it, but would not like the heat any better than you do. 😀
Looking forward to winter here – in several months time.
Its just gone midnight here and its blowing a gale, but an owl is hooting, has been for about an hour on and off, hope he has a tight grip 🙂 Ha ha I’m looking forward to summer in several months time 🙂
It was 34C today – Yes I know you’re thinking how marvellous! But really – it is to hot! 🙂
I envy you your owl hooting. 😀
Oh I agree, 34C way too hot for me, I’m a 24C girl myself…..I like cold, but not when its raining. I think the owl is looking for a mate, ha ha wish he would find one 🙂
Aw I do hope the Lonesome Owl finds his mate! 🙂
Up date on owl….still hooting even when we had a little bit of snow last night 🙂
Aw – well I guess it keeps him/her warm! 🙂
Those little dresses are so cute! Nice notice of wash hanging on the side of the house. Enjoyed all those boats.
I loved the little dresses so cute, You will notice some washing on another post, strange where washing can be seen hanging 🙂
Love the trompe-l’oeil statuary on that façade, especially effective from a distance. Portofino is on our list if we ever do that trip down to Turin and Genoa that we’ve been promising ourselves… 😁
Portofino was lovely, all the coastline is beautiful, but so busy, but worth seeing. Its busy because of the cruise ships, but lucky when we were in Portofino, there wasn’t any cruise ships in, so no tourist there…..thank goodness 🙂
Just like I’ve seen on TV, other pictures…it’s real! Maybe someday, but I’ll add it to my list.
It is a beautiful place, I wasn’t too sure, as I thought it would be too touristy, but it wasn’t, it was lovely 🙂 I have lots of my list, far too many places 🙂
Beautiful photos and fantastic colours, would love to visit one day 😀😀
Thank you, glad you enjoyed the visit, hopefully you will get to visit one day 🙂
