19.9.2017 - Costa Smeralda.
Today, we drive around a bit. First to a wonderful rocky cove not far, then to the ost noble tourist village Porto Cervo, last to the small town of Arzachena.
The rock coast of the Costa Smeralda is unique: The rocks are of yellow granite, causing strange shapes, at the same time, the yellow sea ground makes the water color turquoise-blue.
Regrettably, large coast areas are private with houses; but the left side of this peninsulacalled "Punta capaccia" is left free. We walk a bit along the coast.
Sandy places ...
... and bizarre rock coast.

Arrived in Arzachena, where we stroll through the town and drink a nice Capuccino at the city square.
We proceed walking, and all of a sudden, an appearance caough tour eyes: a mushroom-shaped granite rock, which we have to visit of course.
