Day 105 of the 120 Days of Crayola! Hey, we’re getting there! Today let’s look at the beautiful Turquoise Blue Ligurian Sea off the coast of Cinque Terre, Italy! The “Five Lands” are made up of five villages: Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore. The coastline, the five villages, and the surrounding hillsides are all part of the Cinque Terre National Park. Over the centuries, the villagers have carefully built terraces on the rugged, steep landscape right up to the cliffs that overlook the sea.  Paths, trains and boats connect the villages, but cars cannot reach them from the outside. This is paradise on earth!

The variation of house colors resulted when fishermen, doing their jobs just offshore, wanted to be able to distinguish their houses with ease!  Most of the families in the five villages make money by catching fish and selling them in the small port villages. Fish is also their main source of food.

Part of the trail in the Cinque Terre National Park from Riomaggiore to Manarola is called the  Via dell’ Amore or Love Walk. Here we see that locks have been placed on the fence line by romantic lovers. For more posts on beautiful Cinque Terre, just click on the tag in the list to the right!

Turquoise Blue was added to the Crayola lineup in 1935, but was only available in bulk until 1949, when it was added to the assortment of colors.
