Cinque Terre: Clear Water Test

29th July: A fairly cloudy day at the beach in Monterosso al Mare to test water and deposit cake postcards in a clear sea. I had scoped out this location two days before - it was the beach closest to the trail head from the previous day's hike and it looked ideal with the exception of the crowds that quickly filled every available towel space.

I sat against the rock wall on pebbles very difficult to walk on waiting for the sun to come out.

There was some bubbly water with brown stuff floating on the surface eight feet out. "Please don't be what I think it is as I have to swim through that," were my continual thoughts. Overall it was very clear water. As the crowds grew, more and more people walked in front of my photographs.

Yup.... clear water. The rock barrier in the distance was the next obstacle to conquer.
