please click on photo to see bridge details up close
G is for golden, just like the light shining on this medieval bridge in florence. we had a lot of ground to cover in the short time we were there. luckily everything we wanted to see was within walking distance. ponte vecchio actually means old bridge, the oldest of its type in europe. read more about it here.
if you think about it, realizing the mediterranean sea is connected to the atlantic ocean somehow makes it seem all the more accessible from long island. maybe this is stretching things, but the waters of the atlantic and this sea are actually connected! one has to wonder what it would be like to travel aboard one of those Mediterranean Cruises I have heard about. I imagine a cruise could be quite an adventure providing many interesting photo ops. and I also imagine the best time to travel the sea would be during this region's hot dry summer climate. perhaps I would get to circle around sardinia or get a glimpse of the coast of barcelona or greece. how I would love to cruise this part of europe via this "inland" sea - taking pictures all along the way.
