Cinque Terra Italy... This is one of the 5 little towns that makes up this place along the Italian coast.

This has got to be one of my top 3 favorite water fountains!   It's very old and I found it in Italy.   The person who designed it was either inspired by a 13 year old boy (or maybe they were a 13 year old boy) or maybe it was someone who had already created endless water fountains with jugs of water pouring out the flowing water... and was trying to think of new ways to show where the water flowed out.... lol

This is the main street from the ocean towards the little town built along the rock cliffs.   See the cheese store on the left?

Same outdoor restaurant-- looking towards the sea.

Doesn't this just make you want to sit down and have some pasta? 

The whole open harbor.  Right behind me is that street and some more open air restaurants... across the street from the first photo.

I can't remember which one it is right now.  Let's just say it was beautiful (as they all are/were) and call it a day.   I always take photos of water fountains too... and of course the statues holding up marble window ledges.   They tend to look like the weight of the window ledge is crushing their heads/hands/etc.   Some of these statues are even grimacing from the weight of the marble/window/etc..
