Italian Riviera Beach Day⛱
Monterosso al Mare/Manarola, Cinque Terre
Ahh the smell of salt and the ocean breeze make for a tranquil day at the beach! This particular beach at Monterosso al Mare was interesting because it had both sand and unique rocks. I collected some beautiful rocks, and the water sparkled in the sunlight as I splashed in the waves. In my opinion, this was one of the most relaxing days of the entire trip. I feel much more peaceful when I am living in the present, and watching the tide rise and fall. The rows of brightly colored beach umbrellas were quite stunning as well!
Later in the day, we took a dip in a swimming hole in Manarola! We set our towels and bags on a nearby rock and dived right in! This was such a magical experience, and I loved the spontaneity of it all.
