On a Boat, In the Mediterranean

On a Boat, In the Mediterranean

This is the Italian Riviera and more specifically, the Riviera di Levante.

But this is looking at it from a boat in the Mediterranean. I can't tell you how good that feels to say.

Not as good as being there though.

It was really nice to get out onto the water to escape the heat a while and get a different perspective of the coast. There are some amazing houses - mansions? hotels? could go either way really – on top of the hills as well as right down near the water. There are no roads to the water so the only way in or out is by boat.

We were on our way to a small bay that has a tiny fishing village and an old abbey. An old abbey that was, for years, a den for various pirates. Seriously.

San Fruttuoso di Capodimonte. Just rolls off the tongue, no?
