Let’s go to Positano

Let’s go to Positano.

That was the talk over breakfast.

Not again.

It may only be a 20 minute eight euro boat trip around the corner – but it may as well be another world away.

The sight of beautiful Amalfi slipping away in your wake can only give you something to long to return to later…

Now I know we are tourists, not natives; travellers from another country. But we like to pretend otherwise, we like to sneak around the edges and sit round with the locals – well not in Positano; oh no.

Let’s go to Positano?

Oh no not for me thanks – no port, no commerce, no locals, no lemons, no fishing boats, nothing in fact but tourists.

Still, nice to take some snaps and mess around up hill and down dale; take a good look around as you won’t be seeing it again here.

Positano?

Who dear, me dear? No dear.

 

Amalfi in Monochrome

Amalfi in Monochrome.

I keep adding images as the week progresses – tempted as I am to use colour, I want this post to be all about Monochrome.

It  goes dark here so quickly, round about 6.15pm just as it’s time for an early evening drink.

So here is to the Hotel La Bussola – scene of a honeymoon 27 years ago; it’s still standing, and so is the hotel, out on the front, overlooking the harbour with our white Fiat 500 just parked outside.

All these years on and the Amalfi coast is as beautiful as I remember; in fact more so; here are some images taken in monochrome this week; I hope you like them.
