第四天下午我們總共去了兩個地方 - Calanques de Piana (Piana的海灣) 和Porto (一個小鎮).
We visited "Calanques de Piana" (Click HERE for more info.) and Porto (a village) on the fourth day.

Arrived in Piana~
抵達Piana的海灣 (法文是Calanques de Piana) ~
海灣位於Piana小鎮和Porto小鎮之間, 以巨大紅花崗岩所形成的峭壁, 是個經由海水與風沙侵蝕或洞穴頂方塌陷之後, 某些部分被上升的海水所淹沒的天然景觀!
此地雖然是個值得前往的景點, 但令我訝異的是, 那裡沒有停車場, 只有一條蜿蜒崎曲的狹窄山路! 當對面車道出現大卡車/砂石車或公車這種龐然大物時, 尤其在轉彎路口, 汽車就只能乖乖的倒車或靠邊停 (依車道空間而定. 大型車輛在轉彎前都會按喇叭以告知對方來車, 那樣可以減少倒車的麻煩!).
我跟外星人都很納悶, 如果剛好有兩台公車交錯, 那豈不就更艱險困難?! 我也不敢想像在旺季時段的交通會有多麼的可怕 (夏季就是旺季, 從六月開始算)!
雖然車道窄小, 但遊客(包括我們)為了拍照會將車子停在路旁的暫停區 (位置都不大), 沿著路邊走, 邊看邊拍! 其實還蠻危險的, 必須得非常注意來往車輛. 外星人是個很注意安全的人, 所以站在路邊拍照的舉動簡直把他搞到精神緊張!
Arrived in Calanques de Piana~
Calanques de Piana is located in between Piana and Porto, and it’s indeed a beautiful and magnificent place to visit. However, there isn’t any parking for visitors, and the mountain road is very narrow and winding! When there's a truck or a bus approaching from the opposite lane, especially at the curves, cars can only reverse or pull over (The oversize vehicles will honk before turning in order to inform the car on the opposite lane. That can reduce the trouble of reversing!).
Alien and I can’t help to wonder - What if there are two buses on both lanes at the same time? What a disaster that must be! I can’t imagine how horrible the traffic will be over there in the high season (From June to September)! People said that the summer time in Corsica is like hell, a beautiful hell!
Despites the narrow road, the visitors (including us) can park the car on the side of the road when it’s possible (In some area, there is extra space for parking temporarily). We quickly got off the car and walked along the road to find a good place to take photos. It’s a bit dangerous, so we do need to pay great attention to the traffic.
Alien is all about safety, therefore, standing on the roadside taking photos made him quite nervous!

Arrived at the port of Porto~
I love this one! The waves seem so close, but they were very far away!
我也超愛這一張! 天空真的很神奇! 美麗到令我屏息!
I love this one as well! The sky is truly amazing! It's so beautiful that takes my breath away!
一瞬間, 天空立即變色! 在這世界上, 還有什麼是比天空還要更反覆無常?
Within a moment, the sky changed its color! In this world, what is more variable than the sky?
時間愈來愈晚, 風愈來愈大, 天氣也愈來愈涼! 回程的路是同一條窄路, 但那時已接近晚上七點, 所以路上的車輛很少, 我囂張的站在路中間拍照. 外星人還是很小心的站在路邊幫我注意來車! 呵呵~ 因為有他的謹慎, 我才敢囂張啊~
It was getting dark, the wind was getting stronger, and the temperature was getting colder. It was time to go back (I didn't want to!). We took the same narrow road for the way back. It was 7pm, so there were just a few cars on the road.
I stood in the middle of the road taking pictures; Alien was standing on the roadside, cautiously checking for cars. With his cautiousness, that’s why I dared to stand in the middle of the road!
I personally love the backlight effect. Check out the bottom right corner in the photo below…
看到了嗎? 是愛心喔!! 這塊岩石被命名為海灣的情侶~
Did you see it? A heart!! It's called "Inlet's lover~"
