Thank-you to everyone who left lovely comments on my Biscotti and Lavender Farm posts. Really and truly, each and every comment you take time to write brings joy to my heart!
I'd love to share a few more of my favourite photos from our trip to Italy. How about a few views of the beautiful coastal town of Sorrento? ? Yes! Wonderful. Scroll on down!!
We arrived on the Bay of Naples, high above the town. Our driver stopped at a roadside parking area and we had the perfect view of the town, far below us. And what a sight it was!
It was a hot and sunny July day and being a Sunday, thousands of Italians had fled the city and headed to the sea. Every parking lot was full of small little Italian cars and every beach was swamped with chairs, umbrellas and towels.
Look how close all of the deck chairs are!!
Sit down, enjoy the sun ,and don't move cause you'll lose your spot!!
I love how close I was able to zoom in with my new camera. These people were on the farthest beach, and I can almost see their facial expressions - as well as the details on their bathing suits!
These floatie-boats we strung between two of the rocky juts that reached out into the bay. What a refreshing place to relax - in the sun and in the water!
So far up - these people look like sun-bathing ants.
It was so hot! Kevin and I wished we could refresh ourselves in the water, too. We were heading down into town and we were sure we would make it to the beach, but without a bathing suit, the most we could do was put our feet in!
This must be the Bay of Naples - because there's Mt. Vesuvius!
|This is one of the few pictures of the two of us together on this trip. I try to pose as often as I can, but hubby isn't really a photographer - though he tries very hard. :)|
I have lot of pictures of the town of Sorrento, too. We enjoyed lots of lemon-y foods (a specialty of the region) and ventured up quiet back streets to see the less tourist-y part of this seaside idyll. I'll do some more photo sharing next week!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone. I'm back in my hometown for a few days, catching up with old friends and hopefully hitting the beach with my 3 crazy kids.
Take care of each other,
