The Optomist returns to Porto Badisco - pastels in Puglia, Italy

Posted On: Sunday 4th November 2012
Summary: I have put the towns behind me for a moment to paint landscape in Puglia, Italy. In pastels. The tiny harbour of Porto Badisco is a hidden gem.

porto badisco pastelsAfter several days based in Lecce, in Puglia Italy, we moved down the East coast to Porto Badisco for several days on a farm. (Stunning food). Arrived late afternoon, swam in the tiny harbour seen here and then painted in pastels as the light faded and a small "Optimist" sailing dinghy ghosted in on the slightest of breezes.

Here and all around the area is a lot of limestone pavement. Bare but with rich flora and butterflies.
