After I returned from the marble quarries, I took a bus to Marina di Carrara, the next small town where there is port and a beach. Living in Florida, I have missed the beach, so it was wonderful to be able to just sit on a piece of driftwood on the wide and mostly deserted beach, and feel the breeze and the sand between my toes. As I listened to the rhythmic sounds of the waves, I could see the Ligurian Sea in front of me, and if I turned around, the majestic mountains gleaming with white marble behind me. Incredible!
I always feel so relaxed and find being at the ocean so peaceful. Bellissima!
