Livorno, Ligurian Sea on the west coast of Tuscany is home where Emiliano and the family is from and live very special life by the sea. And it continues through Gael living the sea life every summer. Delicious and bit emotional lunch ( always this Love is there among all of us in many different ways during meals together, it slightly breaks my heart in a good way) with Livia and Luciano, Emi’s parents, then we have little nap that is very hard to wake up under the quiet ceiling fan… Then we will be off to our little spots along the coast. We much prefer spots after Calafuria where is much rockier with mazing crystal clear cool water with ton of little fish and sea urchins… The locals are real. Jumping in the sea after blazing sun slightly baking you is just so delicious. You will say “Ahhhh Be-Ne…!” which means Ahhh it’s so greeeat…! The water so blue, the sun so perfect, it brings your tears out and make your heart all bit pumped up. When you thought there’s no more new here, Gelataio, an ice cream man will arrive with small coolers containing iced water bottles and ice cream bars ( I love classic Cornetto : the crispy sugar cone one).
In these moments, you are completely perfect.
After long day on the coast, you will be off to home to shower and change. There’s this sleepy tiredness on a way home. Legs are bit heavy feeling salt on your face. Soon amazing sunset will be waiting for you with aperitif by the water. Friends and locals are swarming in with their fresh outfits and high heels are out. Great music is in the air and the refreshing feeling after cool shower and see breeze under your arms and ears is just so amazing. Then you will say one more time, ” Ahhhh Be-Ne…!” and I see ocean turning into Liquid Gold behind Emi’s beautiful face…
And you know you are Completely Perfect. Again.
