Boxing Day Boats - colours that make me drool.

   




So on Boxing Day we ( Mum, me and children) dragged ourselves out for a massively long walk.  We went up through the famous Roman Pinetta (pine forest) then back down along the fisherman's canal.  On Christmas Eve I'd been running on the same route and had noticed hoards of fishermen along there, hauling in the fresh fish for the Italian Christmas Eve feasts (we had salmon tagliatelli and an enormous roast spigola, caught that morning), but on Boxing Day it was empty except for the odd boat tethered up to the railings.  
I had to take a few pics as the colours of the paint and netting combined with the weathered textures were so beautiful.  I think I'm going to have to have a go at a nautical group in these colours!
