20170628 - Corsica - Day 4
Another expedition! We decided to explore the northern part of the island, so we booked a room at a brewery/farm for one night.
black and white
We stopped for lunch in the beautiful town of Saint Florent. Stocked up on supplies on the local supermarket and headed for for the east side of the island, over the mountains. Pro tip : to get unusual expressions on people faces, carefully shout their name just before you take the picture :) It doesn't always work out well though..
The mountains just north of Saint Florent had some spectacular shapes. Would love to stay longer to catch some more dramatic light.
Passing over the middle of the island, heading down to Bastia, and then further up the coast nearer our goal.
This is a beach called Marine de Pietracorbara. After a bit of fresh air, we drove up to our lodgings for the night : Les chambers de la Distillerie.
The forest around our hotel for the night has lots of cork trees. The kind of tree that produces the cork for wine bottles. I've never seen them before.
The distillery/hotel/restaurant is also a dairy farm where they produce traditional Corsican goats cheese.
