In Bonifacio

Like a very warm summer's day in Canada here at the southern tip of Corsica in the first week of October. Stunning setting, lots of boats, and a 2-storey hotel room at the water's edge! We noticed the weather getting warmer as we drove south along the east coast of Corsica, which will make up the first stage to the 2013 Tour de France. Our trip from Bastia took about three hours, including a refreshment break in Porto-Vecchio, which will be the starting of the first stage - already signage announcing the town's coup.

We toured Bonifacio's marina area and, after climbing several steps through a commercial street, we also toured part of the Bosco, a wooded elevated area, which provided some great views of the Bonifacio's dramatic landscape (see photo). Later we took a boat tour of the nearby area - again very impressive & stunning views.

A mix-up in hotel reservations on my part means that we are only staying here for two days, instead of three - will work in the 3rd day's activities on the way to our studio apartment rental in Cargese on Sunday. Tomorrow will likely be my last posting until next Friday.
