Are we there yet?

Today we walked the trail overlooking the rocky cliffs between Monterosso and the next hamlet to the south called Vernazza. From my trip here 10 years-ago, I remembered a short, low-impact hike lasting approximately 30-45 minutes. “This would be a great before-lunch stroll”, I thought.

We took off around noon…..just as the sun reached its maximum intensity. As we rounded the first corner, 20 minutes into the hike, I said to Lisa, “We’re almost there”.

To make a long story short, we trudged up and down for the next two and a half hours and arrived in Vernazza a sweaty mess. Fortunately Lisa thought my error in memory was borderline hysterical and we laughed around each corner as I said, “It shouldn’t be much farther”.

Once we arrived, we both stripped down and plunged into the ocean. After cooling off, we ate a great meal in the square.
