It is hard to believe that this is our second summer in Italy. However, we had not been truly down to Amalfi. While we had traveled to Sorrento, we had only grazed the tip. Many people have told me how beautiful the Amalfi Coast is, how lovely I would find Positano and a visit to Capri is a must. Not that I did not believe them, I just believe words cannot describe the beauty of this place.
We made Positano our home base. I am quite lucky to have a friend with a home there that we were able to use, with a breath-taking view. Everywhere you looked seemed to be postcard perfect. From the beautiful Bougainville, crystal blue water of the sea and the largest lemons I have ever seen. We made the most of every day there and used our time to explore in fun ways. One of the most enjoyable things we did was go on a small boat cruise up and down the coast, just us and another family. The captain was great pointing out many things. I was even able to practice my Italian with him.
We did a stop in the Town of Amalfi, had lunch, walked around and took in the sites. Again, lemons abounded and I found that I was craving them all week!
