Some posts simply get lost, but I would like to salvage this one, even if it is out of season by now.
Tiki statues, Surfer Joe Diner, Terrazza Mascagni, Livorno
Last July I went to the Terrazza Mascagni and I saw several Tiki statues around the Surfer Joe Diner.

It seems that they were props to advertise their new Tiki Room. (Photos taken last July)

Lantana camara

Lantana camara, Parterre, Livorno
It seems that this beautiful plant, which I saw at the Parterre, has several downsides: it is considered an invasive species, it could be toxic to animals, but it is really loved by bees and birds.

View on the Old Harbor

Old harbor, Pamiglione, Livorno
Another view from the Mastio (Keep) of the Fortezza Vecchia, this time toward south. This is the original harbor of Livorno, called Darsena Vecchia (Old Harbor) or Pamiglione.
On the left you can see the fishing boats, on the right the boats of Coast Guard, firefighters and Guardia di Finanza.

The Blue Hut

You can see this stall on the water side of our Mercato del Pesce (Fish Market), on Scali delle Ancore.
It stands between the slightly faded Blue Whale and a nearby restaurant, which specializes in seafood.
