never give up

I've shared with you three of the other Cinque Terre towns HERE and HERE but I decided to save Vernazza for last.  Vernazza was always the prettiest of the five towns and of course, the most popular.  Many of you may not know, but in October 2011, there were flash floods and landslides that devastated the town.  Since the town survives on tourism, the locals had been working endlessly to restore Vernazza to its original beauty.  Apparently everything is up and running now, but this is what it looked like when I was there in mid-May.  Despite all the devastation, Vernazza was still beautiful, and my favourite town in the Cinque Terre.  

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! It was a beautiful day in Toronto, so hopefully you enjoyed the weather!
