Our Savior's love, shines like the sun with perfect light. As from above, it breaks through clouds of strife.

This Weekend




They say that a picture is worth a thousand words. Well, here is a 3,000 word essay. This is in Cinque Terre, the most relaxing spot we've ever seen. It is made up of 5 small towns, connected by a train or hiking trails. We spent the first of our two days there at the beach- beautiful, blue-green water right against the mountains. On the second day, we hiked between the first three towns. Cinque Terre is a national park, with rules against large developments, so, although it has been discovered by tourists, it has still retained its small-town charm. We could walk through the town we stayed in, Vernazza, in less than 5 minutes. We rented a room from a nice older Italian lady named Theresa, who spoke no English. Two of Nicolle's favorite foods- focaccia bread and pesto- originated here, and we enjoyed them several times.

OH my gosh, that second picture of you two in the little village looks like it is right out of a movie. How wonderfully romantic. I am just so happy for you two. It looks like you are having the time of your lives. Good for you. I am loving all the updates and pictures. This has been so fun to experience with you.

It looks like you guys are walking through postcards or paintings. Awesome! And, ewwww....could have done without the kissing picture. :) Just kidding. Who did you ask to take that? Or did you just set up the camera?

Hi! Bob and I stayed in Vernazza on our honeymoon. We also stayed with a woman (maybe Theresa?!) in the building right in center of the picture, on the third floor, to the right. She spoke no English but had lived in Mexico City, so we were able to communicate in Spanish! The most amazing experience was wandering into the church (at the far left in the picture) and hearing the choir, and operatic choir director, practice. Unforgetable. Have a great rest of your trip, C O N G R A T U L A T I O N S!, and thanks for sharing your blog. xo, Auntie Kim
