Happy Easter from Cinque Terre and Vernazza

Vernazza - The Phoenix is Rising Again

sunny

What a glorious day! Today the sun is out in full force with brilliant blue skies and strong winds.

.........and now its already Monday and I have had not a minute to write about Vernazza so I will just send some pictures for now.....
Vernazza was struck by a terrible mudslide on October 25, 2011....13 feet of mud filled the streets and swept cars out to sea. The people of Vernazza have worked so very hard to reclaim their town. The signs of destruction are very where but also of new life....the doors of the old buildings have been painted beautiful colours and its quite moving to see the Phoenix rising again.....Vernazza was always known as the jewel of Cinque Terre...one day it will be again.

The Doors of Vernazza.....
