Blue Skies

Favorite thing Boat Trips and Restaurants

Fondest memory My best memory of lerici and La Spezia was spending it with two special people,having a birthday
meal and sitting by the sea having a fag with Vera.Also sitting outside a bar having a bottle of wine and some capers then sitting on the rocks having lunch, nice warm evenings walking walking along the sea front looking at the night market,then waking up to nice Blue skies.
The thing i miss is the relaxed atmosphere,the friendly people,and the food(lots of it)
Thank You
Marco and Vera
