Surfers helping out

For those of you who don't know, you can surf here. In fact, the waves in Levanto are so well known that they merit the Bear Pro world championship in longboarding, which is going on until November 20th. Unfortunately, I've been a little preoccupied and haven't made it there, but the surfers instead came here. Or rather, to Vernazza, but the sentiment is really moving, and the video they made is great.
You can really get an idea of what happened here through the video, and appreciate how much we have to do...and there are some beautiful images of this great big sea on our doorstep.

  1. Christine,
    Wonderful post..I savored every word. I sincerely wish you and Monterosso a speedy recovery from the flood damage.
    By the way, do you happen to know Christina Olighieri? She helped a friend and I in 2001 and we will always remember her hospitality. We wonder how she, her family and her shop fared with the water and mud damage.
    Thank you for your blog and I am looking forward to your next post.
