Hi Sil, glad to see you're well xxx'Khalilah' is a stunning yacht, very striking with her gold paint. Palmer Johnson make some incredible fast yachts, look for 'DB9' (my favourite from them). sorry about your new found addiction.... well not really lol. they're such beautiful and amazing pieces of engineering, you can't help but admire them. have a wonderful Christmas holiday season Sil, take care xoxoxo
Hi Lou! It´s me Sil (had ro register again cuz after the latest Windows 10 upgrade, my personal sites are all messed up, uurrggghhh). Anyway, just wanted to say hello, know if you ´re fine and say that u have nicely contaminated me with your love for the super glamourous yachtes... I´ve recently found a great one to explore at utube "khalilah" ! :)Wish I could "meet" u to say how this is cool - u know that though! Have a great week! xoxoxoxo
Gert: I hope they will have the same Christmas lighting as you remember. Will keep checking in for that. They'v got enough sockets to display - remember the Ferrari launch! Would be beautiful with the reflections in the harbour when there is now little craft moored. I think the Italian Christmas celebrations are the same as in the UK but could be slightly different as in Spain where they celebrate the visit of the Three Kings on January 6, I think.
Hi Capture Sam: I gained my perspective of the actual size of the harbour and the bay from a UK travel programme which included Portofino. Very aware of photographic camera angles and what they can misinterpret but the programme did 'wander' around the harbour and the bay and what was amazing later were the views from Castello. Have not visited this area but so want to. Genoa city looks interesting and have a couple of days in Portofino during July would be good. Yacht watching. Don't do sailing in any form, have an aversion, but love to see the boats.Ruby: See you have been back. In case we don't catch up, hope you have a purrrrrfct Christmas and New Year. Just had a lovely weekend catchup with a close friend in Harrogate.
2dec17--Lesley Shaw you commented in the other channel >>The harbour and the bay are bigger than they appear on the webcam.<< Looking closely here you can spot people walking the promenade in front of the buildings on the right, Tiny tiny tiny and gives some perspective , are not these 'live cams' great.

12-2-17 07:40 Lou, I hope your holidays will go well. I haven't posted much here because of a certain poster but I do check in once in awhile. I'm hoping for lots of snow for Christmas.Lesley, If I remember correctly they lit up the buildings and I think there was a tree in the square & fireworks on New Year's Eve.
Hi! To all the regulars and those who have found this beautiful place. Confess not been around because 2 camera been down. It won't be anything big coming in but do you think there may be celebration fireworks for Christmas and New Year? Who knows. Maybe it has come up that we like to look at the bay. Should have the 2 cameras on all the time we are never sure why they shut down. We can only guess.
Glad to see the cams back as well. Is it me or do they seem a bit more vibrant? Merry Christmas to you as well Lou.
pleasantly surprised these cams are back, its good to see all the regular Skyliners are still around too. strange to see it so bare, some of the smaller yachts / boats usually tend to stay tied up for the winter. but its soooo empty. as for the large yachts Gert, they'll start to make their way back to the Med around the end of April to prep for the summer season, we'll see them again from May / June onward's. as its now Dec 1st, just in case these cam's go off again.... i hope you all have a wonderful Christmas when it comes xxx
29/11/17 9.20 am UK time. Hi Gert, it seems odd not seeing any of the boats in the harbour and bay. Even that huge yacht has gone from the bay which seemed to have been there all summer. All in sunnier climes I guess. Lucky them. Getting cold in the UK and I'm not wishing for snow! Have a good festive season.
29nov17-- Thank You host, Hotel Association of Santa Margherita Ligure and Portofino, for sponsoring this 'live cam' with its beautiful live images of Portofino’ sea and its Harborside Square from Castello Brown.
11-29-17 00:15 Thanks Ruby, hope your Thanksgiving went well. I too was surprised they were back up. It's nice to see that most of my favorite cams haven't been overrun by a certain poster. I will check in here occasionally just to keep up. If I don't see you here before, here's hoping your Christmas season goes well. I'm hoping for lots of snow.
Hi Gert - I was surprised to see the Portofino cams back up. As you said most of the boats have gone so not much to see really. I have been looking at the Malta cams and checking out the yachts there with marinetraffic. Also Fort Lauderdale (not skyline) some super ones there. Hope you had a good thanksgiving day.
11:28-17 08:10 Looks like most of the boats (big & small) have been stored for the winter? Lou if you are still popping in occasionally, when do the boats usually return?
