Inspired by a day hiking and exploring Cinque Terra.  I hiked the trail from Monterosso to Vernazza, stopping in Vernazza for the town’s infamous pasta with pesto and a nice cold birra. I sketched the church and buildings and got into an interesting conversation with a father and son from Poland, who were sitting at the table next to me.  After lunch and some more exploring of Vernazza, I caught my train back to Monterosso to meet my pre-arranged boat that was waiting to take me to see the picturesque town of Riomaggiore by water.  I have seen the five towns of Cinque Terra by land, but never by sea, so what better way than by boat.  On the way to Riomaggiore we stopped off at a turquoise-colored cove, and went for a quick swim.  No time to waste, the sun was going down quick.  Back in the boat and up the coast we went, photographing the five towns of Cinque Terra along the way.  When we got to Riomaggiore, the suns rays illuminated the buildings which in turn cast their colorful reflections into the sea.  The scene was alight with color!  What an amazing way to catch the sunset and take in the breathtaking scenery of Cinque Terra.
