A Second Visit to Corsica

Last May we visited Corsica on our Seabourn cruise. It was a heavy rain day, and Dan had a cold so he stayed on board. Jim took a bus tour to the Calanches, a spectacular range of mountains. Monday September 2 we returned to the island, and Jim went snorkeling, while Dan took a bus tour to the beautiful mountainous area of the Prunelli Gorge. His tour also included Lake Tulla (see photos) before returning to the capital of Ajaccio. It’s easy to see why the ancient Greeks in the 6th century called this place ‘the beautiful one.’ Enormous granite mountains rise over rivers, gorges and lakes high into the stratosphere. The natives have managed to keep the beauty of their island intact for the most part. –Dan
