Now, where was I?

When we left off, I was ga-ga over meeting Rick Steves Friday night in a Vernazza café. Wouldn't you know, the next night, he’s at our restaurant again!  Turns out, he stays next door to II Pirates. After a third sighting on the street today, I am so over him! 
I'm a little behind with the itinerary and way-off track, chronologically, but on with the photos…
This is Monterosso, one of the five villages in the Cinque Terre, the one with the resort-like feel and nice beaches....
Here’s a “pill box” bunker used by the Nazis in WW2....
I have seriously fallen in love with the alleys over here.  Charming...
We had a brief shower, so we stumbled into this crazy tasting room – limoncello and about fifteen other Italian liqueurs – free! One of the funnier moments of the trip....
Dinner last night at II Pirates (location of 2nd Rick Steves sighting – ho hum) – appetizer: seafood trio. Delicioso!
We met these two fun gals from New London, New Hampshire at dinner. They’re showing the purse that was pick-pocketed in Rome. A much-heeded cautionary tale, as we are getting WAY too relaxed.
