Color Your World: 120 Days of Crayola; Pacific Blue

From Sea to Shining Sea!

From Sea to Shining Sea!

Crayola added the color Pacific Blue to their collection in 1993. It is known as Megabyte Blue in the “Techno Brite” series, Pacific Ocean in the “Discovery” series and Sea to Shining Sea in the “State Crayon Collection”.

I like the idea of Sea to Shining Sea, so here we are looking at the shining  Lingurian Sea from Corniglia, Italy! Of the five villages that make up the Cinque Terre region of Italy, Corniglia was my favorite. There are not too many tourists here and only a handful spend the night, but all the charms of the village are intact; the hillside vineyards, the tiny cobbled streets with fantastic eateries, shops selling handmade gifts, and great views to photograph! Staying at a B&B here would be the ideal location to experience the real Italy! Why don’t the tourists flock here, you ask? To reach Corniglia, it is necessary to climb the Lardarina, a long brick flight of steps composed of 33 flights with 382 steps or follow a vehicular road that, from the station, leads to the village. Thank God there is also that little bus!

This post is just one of many in the Color Your World: 120 Days of Crayola Challenge! Enjoy!
