The hillside town of St Antonino is the highest in the area. This was a view of it from one of our earlier walks. We did climb up and visit it, but unfortunately there looked like a storm brewing, so returned. The storm stayed in the mountains and I did a painting of Pigna instead.
This is the old fort at Girolata on the Scandola Nature reserve in Corsica. There are only two ways, apart from parachute, to get here either walk or get a boat. We did the latter. It was a bay within a bay and had cattle on the seashore as well as the odd bar. You can say what you like about the French, but they put on a good boat trip. Who else would include a two hour lunch stop. Instead of eating I went and painted.
This is a view of Pigna from the old donkey track to a nearby hillside town, Corbara. We have used Pigna as a base to walk to various places. Lovely old tracks, centuries old that are lined with tumbledown walls and shaded with olive and oak trees.
Another morning view of Calvi harbour. I liked the ranks of yacht bows lined in the water.
This is the top of Corbara, a small town we walked to. It nestles high up in the Corsican hills looking down on the valley and sea.
