The Cliff Houses of Bonifacio (Travel Theme: Pastel)

This weeks Travel Theme: Pastels over at “Where’s my backpack?” immediately made me think of the town of Bonifacio on the southern tip of Corsica. So I dug deep into my collection of old vacation pictures to find this photo of the spectactular town overhanging the ocean.

The lightly coloured houses are built right up to the egde of the cliffs. The soft limestone underneath has been washed out by the ocean and the houses look almost as if they were suspended in mid-air. You get the best view from the water, so we made a boat trip along the coast to see the town to its full extent.
