saturday in san remo, italy

while my family came to visit we took a few little day trips in the region, to check out the sights. 
the first - san remo, italy.  best on a saturday morning to hit up the huge market :)
here are some of the sights. enjoy the mini tour!

i don't think i would take these if someone paid me

but sundried tomatoes, we did buy
this was lunch
 
leather is available all over 

i wish people still wore hats.  never really have, but i'm beginning to seriously love them.
this plant is new to me.  they're in season in the region now, and have a lovely light fragrance. 
they're called mimosas. and i believe they use them to make perfume.

a beautiful day along the ocean.

here we are, enjoying gelato after being shopped out.  thank you for the pic steve!

  2. You know Mel, mimosa is the flower we give on woman's day, the 8 of March, however I never liked the smell.
    But it's beautiful, it seems you had a nice trip.

  11. Effin' gorgeous pics. They make me miss Italy. Can't wait to go back. And the food doesn't make me feel any better about my wimpy lunch. And I don't know what you mean about the hats... I'd wear just about everything on the left side of that photo.
