..¬† from Positano’s beach in fact ūüôā

Narrow streets and quaint shops at every turn .. what a beautiful place Positano is … wished we could have stayed much, much longer there.¬† This is one place to return to one day .. definitely!!

Come …..¬† come with us as we walk down, down, down to the beach … and back up, up and up again !!¬†¬† I had to be¬†mindful of¬†taking¬†photos of all the fabulous clothing and goodies spilling out onto pavements and through shop windows and doors, but I managed to capture the essence of this beautiful village called Positano ..

We got kind-of lost finding the¬†beach as every¬†narrowest-of-narrow¬†street was a dead end until we found this one …

Of course, I had to put my toes in the sea (Bay of Naples) ¬†.. and bring back a few pebbles ūüėČ

Phew .. it was quite a climb, especially in the heat!!¬†¬† Stopping for an icy cold beer for hubby and chilled glass of wine for me was the only¬†solution¬†… on a creeper covered deck with mist sprays ..

A little keepsake from Positano – a small dish for lemons – which is always in use in my home¬† … ¬†always bringing back memories of a village ‘ clambering down a vertiginous slope to the Bay of Naples ‘

Not a keepsake but consumed after dinner …¬†heavenly¬†dark choccie topped with lemon flavoured choccie … oh it was yummy!!!
