Shopping in Ventimiglia

I went shopping alone in Ventimiglia market this morning so with my huge rucksack, and my camera bag in tow, I caught the trenitalia train at 8:30am hoping to get back home three hours later.

Walking to the train station is such a delight, it’s like nature-tripping.

In the coastal town of Ventimiglia, although the sun is shining bright, the snowcapped mountain of the Alps in the background make a good postcard shot.

The water reflection of the old town is another postcard beauty.

To pass the time, I went walking to the beach and saw the stone sculptures on display.

The palm trees are starting to grow flowers which will turn into fruits later.

It’s the Sailing Season!

Well, actually, it’s the “Learning How to Sail Season” for the young. Everywhere I went, by the sea, I see this long line of tiny sailing boats gliding in the water and I thought, I could make a good photo collection of them. You see them in the Spring when it is not too hot and it is not too cold. So here they are:
