    Just a little thread about nice places nearby.




    Edit: YouTube took down or lost the original video, and it was the only copy I had, so enjoy this video of my dog being a cat... at the park.

    I really should take pictures, my Moto z takes moderately crappy pictures but it's still gorgeous out here.

    I just Googled your location and realised that it's just north of Cinque Terre (I did the standard touristy stuff there several years ago). That coastline is gorgeous.

    Wow, great stuff.

    Our local area (Chiltern Hills in the UK) is famous for bluebells at this time of year...

    Photo location is Portofino, in the park.

    As in "National Park" like Yellowstone but nobody said what kind of park so it totally counts :p

    I can see the photo location from my house and vice versa (is like 2px X 2px in the photo), the park extends all the way here to like a 5 minute walk away but the pretty part is near Portofino proper which is a 3 minute train ride away.

    You could drive but then it's 90m to park so ...

    There is a park nearby where I go biking most days. This city is built at the confluence of two rivers so there are a lot of river trails to ride on, both maintained gravel and the ad hoc dirt trails I prefer.

    And there are places where people have handily "improvised" trails where they would otherwise not go. I'm too chicken to drive on these, and the picture does not do justice to just how steep this rail bed is.

    It's been fairly rainy here, so it looks particularly good.

    Cold is one thing I never miss. I guess I came to the right part of the world!

    (although I miss snow... everything about it except the temperature)
