Fun in the sun
This morning we had a lovely breakfast on the deck with gorgeous views from the heavens. After Simon did his washing in the bidet….gross, we caught the local bus down the hill to the township of Positano. It appears that Positano is the home of linen, cotton, lemons and ceramics. These products filled the many tiny shops scattered around. After a bit of shopping it was time for a swim. The water was absolutely beautiful, crystal clear and warm, but refreshing. It was 25 euros to hire the shaded deck chair so we didn’t bother with that, just roughed it on the stones! We had a lovely lunch. Simon and I had mussel soup , lovely but the mussels were not quite the same size as our jumbo green lipped ones.! Martyn and I decided to walk around to the next bay, but on the way discovered a beautiful little alcove with very few people. We stayed there, enjoying the water for most of the afternoon. We took the bus back up the hill. It was incredible how many people one small bus can hold, we were jam packed in sweating like pigs. It is still very hot, and hard to cope with at times as it seems Italians are not into air conditioning or even fans.! Tonight we wandered down the lane to a lovely little pizzeria, set into a cave in the hills. So unique, and yummy food too. Then, it was back up the multiple steps to home. With all these steps and the heat the weight should be falling off,…mmm…….but I fear not. Perhaps we will have to do the 2000 steps down the hill to the beach tomorrow and flag the bus.!!
