The path proceeds north along the ridge, with the Mediterranean on the left, popping in and out of the forest, sometimes heading down into a valley, then back up to the top of the ridge.

Occasionally through the forest
Every now and then, we run across a house with the path going through the property. These people certainly have a long walk for groceries, but an incredible view!
House with great views on the trail
After our short urban trek through the yard, we continue along the Mediterranean, with Levanto starting to appear in the distance.

An appropriate reward for the hike!
After lunch, we wander through Levanto to the train station and catch the next train back to Monterosso, where we reward ourselves (again) with a lemon gelato. Another great day in paradise!
