On the ferry, a foretaste of blue water and sunshine.
Multiple shades of blue in Sant’Andrea.
Waves gently breaking on the beach.
Wildflowers spilling down a hillside to the water.
Overblown tulips backlit by the sun.
A street in Capoliveri, quiet in the post-lunch period.
Red geraniums decorating a wall.
A sculpture in a small piazza overlooking the sea.
Turning from the sea, a charming view of stairs and buildings.
Crystal clear water at a black sand beach.
The inner harbor at Marciana Marina.
In Portoferraio, flowers so intensely colored, they looked fake.
Clouds painted on the sky above Portoferraio.
Wildflowers growing on stone.
Sunset at the beach.
