Sweetwater

.
Bridge At Dolceaqua

Early in the trip, our friend Jilly took us into Italy for a day. After seeing the crazy Friday market in Ventimiglia, we went north to see a couple of mountain towns. The main stop was Dolceaqua - Sweetwater. What a great name. This is the famous bridge over the Torrente Nervia river, painted by Monet as shown on the placard. Below, some back streets.

STL DPB will continue with photos from the trip through the week until we get some new local material. A dozen new photos were added to the Flickr set today, all from Italy.

Back Street, Dolceaqua

What a lovely memory of a super day, Bob. I love these photos. Clever you to line up the Monet and the bridge and show them both so beautifully. You wouldn't like to come back and be my live-in photography teacher, would you?
