Vela la Cinque Terre...Riomaggiore arrivederci!
“Sailing the Cinque Terre ... Riomaggiore goodbye!”…
I began my daily journey at the northernmost town of Monterosso and took the train to the southernmost town of Riomaggiore. I sailed up the coast photographing each Cinque Terre town along the way aboard the Angelina Dada. This image was created standing on the rooftop of the antique 28 foot Angelina’s galley with my arms around the mast and my 20-pound camera bag strapped over my shoulder, creating a human tripod for support. I could not help noticing tourists in each village photographing our boat as we sailed up and down the coast; perhaps it was the image of a silly photographer hanging on for dear life as the waves wobbled the boat side to side in anticipation of a splashdown?! Leaving for my destination of Monterosso, soft light illuminated the sky and azure sea of the Mediterranean convincing me to sail back to Riomaggiore with my gracious guides Claudio and Eddie of "Cinque Terre dal Mare" sailing excursions. We arrived just in time for a perfect sunset. After a nice dinner...I caught the last train at midnight back home to Monterosso. I believe there is a great appeal in each of the five Cinque Terre villages, each with a different history, people, elements, and culture. However, I could not help falling in love with tiny Riomaggiore for its scenic appeal, charming culture, and friendly residents.
