Going Back In Time

Going Back In Time

Sometimes, when you go to an amazing place, amazing things happen.

We made the trek from Manarola to Corniglia, climbing the many stairs up to the village - the only one in the Cinque Terre not right down at the water - and looked back at where we had been.

I'm not sure where the schooner came from but it sure fit the scene.

I already felt like I'd gone back in time without having a tall ship drift into the story.

Perfect.

UPDATE: Through some crack google sleuthing, Jeff was able to track down the name of this handsome vessel. It was the Brigantine (not a schooner) Swan fan Makkum and is now under an italian flag and name: The Nave Italia. Built in Poland in 1993 and now operated by the italian navy and the Genoa Yacht Club.

It is the worlds largest brigantine (a vessel with two masts, only the forward one being square rigged). It's also the worlds largest two masted sailing vessel.

Thanks Jeff and Wikipedia.

Ah interweb, is there nothing you can't do.
