This page contains some photographs of Corsica taken in February of 2008. We arrived in Bastia by ferry in the early morning of Friday, February 15, drove south to Bonifacio and back north to L'ile Rousse where we spent two nights. We visited Calvi, and on the way back to Bastia on Sunday, February 17, we stopped in Saint Florent. This short trip yielded some 250 photographs, 48 of which are shown on this page. Corsica is spectacular!
