Ferragosto 2013

We had an excellent Ferragosto with a light breeze mitigating the heat, the perfect weather for a walk.

Some tourists at the beginning of their tour of Livorno canals on a boat. No parasols needed today.

The north entrance of the port is used only by small boats and never by ships. The faraway silhouette of the Northern Tuscany mountains is visible in background.

Lovely shots, each so different, of a sea-faring people.
Love those mountains too.
Sea, sky, mountains--what more does anyone need?

Seeing that guy in the kayak makes me want to hire a kayak and head off somewhere.
