That ethereal veil of mystery...

Tech data: Olympus Pen E-PL2, Olympus Zuiko ED 14-150 mm
Location: Lerici habour, La Spezia

I have always been fascinated by the names of boats, yatchs and their ethereal veil of mystery. Indeed I have been intrigued in particular by the motivations that led fishermen to name their boat and last week, while wandering around Lerici harbour in Cinque Terre, I wandered why the boats have "that name", as well as most have a female name and why some do not, why some have even two and why others have only a symbol. If you will ever own a boat, how you will call it? Which is the particular reason that led you to that name? There are places and people that remain firmly engraved in the heart of each one of us: this is my two cents.
