So now we have
arrived, we’ve safely disembarked and left behind the
colours and scents
of the bustling harbour and the frenzied activity of holiday-makers.
We made our way to the centre of the island along the roads
that from Procchio overlook the
colourful houses of Marciana Marina and climb up through the
vast woodlands of Marciana
Alta perched on a craggy mountainside. In the distance we
were thrilled to see the outline of
Capraia Island and even caught sight of Bastia enshrouded
in a light haze… and then
nothing but silence.
The ingrained stillness of small villages and peaceful coves
where time seems to stand
still. We cast our gaze on this fishing village, with its
weather-beaten rocks and cultivated
terracing… and at last we arrive at destination.
