Did You Say Pastel in Portofino?

You last found me here at the café, just enjoying the beautiful scenery in Portofino, Italy. As I gaze around the harbor it is the pastel colors that put me in a happy mood…………so let’s see more of  Portofino……..

From my chair at the café, I think my favorite color is the peachy terra-cotta color………

But, looking this way, I like these colors too……..especially the contrast of the turquoise signage.

And this sunny ochre-yellow and pale yellow and pastel green and peach look good to me too………..

Or do I like the Pink best?

Or the nectarine color with lime trim and dark green shutter? Since I like them all I think we should explore up this path.

Which brings us to Saint Martin’s Church, which is much larger that Saint George’s….. For some reason they only paint part of the churches here……and I know it’s not because of lack of paint!

Inside Saint Martin’s, the colors coordinate with the colors found outside.

The colors flow effortlessly with the foliage. Color everywhere……….

Our last look at the villas in the hills surrounding  Portofino, before we move on to Saint Margherita…..

On a cold, rainy, gloomy day, I’m going to look back at all these photos and smile! See you tomorrow!
