Bright memories – 8

Do you ever wish you were an artist? What must it be like to look at a scene like this and know that you can replicate your version of heaven, with just a smidgeon of cloud here, a patch of blue there? I hovered behind him, watching the bay take shape in front of my eyes. He was oblivious. Just One Person from around the World.

Perhaps you’d like to sit a while and watch the ferry dock? For us, Ascona was but a brief stop off on our trip to Lake Maggiore, but you can linger as long as you like. Have a cappuchino- why wouldn’t you? I don’t have Becky’s knack for squaring videos, but she made me cry with hers this morning. Streisand often gets me that way. “Misty water-coloured memories…”

Yet another bright memory, but my last from the lovely Italian Lakes. Next time I’ll take you south to the Amalfi Coast.

  1. Tja, Ascona – immer wieder schΓΆn fΓΌr einen Aufenthalt. Von der Deutschschweiz aus ist es mit der Bahn durch den neuen Gotthardtunnel nur noch ein Katzensprung in den Tessin…

  2. What a beautiful scene. I’ve often wished I could paint. If I sketched anything, I’d have to tell the viewer what is is because they’d never know.

  3. Wonderful memories, Jo! I loved Ascona, but only visited once. I would so love to go back there again – but grateful for the memories…Happy you got vaccinated! We are still waiting…

    1. So many lovely places around those lakes, Ann-Christine. I have so enjoyed remembering πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
      We were not expecting the vaccine for another couple of months, but Portugal is desperate for tourists and is working hard to make that possible. When do you expect to receive yours?

  4. What a gorgeous, bright sunny place. Your video is lovely. I want to be there. I would love to be the artist, able to somehow combine what he sees in his mind to what he sees in reality. Like so many bloggers I’ve met, sadly my reality is astigmatic. I might be able to manage a Picasso out of this amazing view. Jo, here is Day 3 of my Soldier’s Pass Trail adventure. https://tchistorygal.net/2021/04/29/brightsquare-bright-spot-in-hike-miracle-marker/

    1. Thanks, Marsha πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Walking with friends this morning in another area of the salt marshes. So busy chatting and catching up, I took hardly any photos πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
