A perfect day

Notes and pictures at the end of a long and hot summer. A holiday in Italy.

Rough sea on a clear day. A pier made of rock on one side of the canal, a fishing hut on the other

The sea is roaring under the blue sky. I’m watching the waves breaking at the rock barriers from the window, as a cotton sweater comforts me.

The last swim of the year happened on a windy day at the end of the longest and hottest summer of my life. It was brisk, and followed by lunch under the olive tree with good company and wine.

I missed being so close to nature; and looking at panoramas as far as my eyes can see, without any obstacles.

Our shadows overlook the morning and quiet sea, a pier and restaurant in front

The beach dotted with sea shells after the previous day's tempest. The sea is very quiet, and the sky blue and clear
