last day…pics

Postcard

Last day, and hopefully- it really is the last day! our
flight is early, early and we are packed and ready to go! What a day we have
had… I just have to share these photos- you know, usually I think that I can
sorta capture at least the feeling that I have in a place… but today- I feel
like I was unable to do what I was seeing with my eyes any kind of justice with
my camera! –and while these are some great photos, the reality is so much more
amazing and beautiful and indescribable! I have never seen anything like this!

 
Breakfast

The day started with a happy surprise! We went up to
breakfast and our new friends- Jane and Stu were there eating breakfast as
well! We all got a good laugh!  The
view from the fifth floor of the hotel was spectacular and the backdrop for breakfast! (that is the view above)-and that is Mt. Viscuvious that erupted on Pompeii in the background

Capriview

I really wanted to visit the Island of Capri- you know,
because I have a ‘Capri’!! i think I have said this, but I like to tell people
that she is named from the Island and not the pants! LOL. All we have heard is
how beautiful it is there…so we got on a ferry and took the 20min boat ride
across the sea.  Capri is a robust,
and delightfully CUTE place!

Caprirocks

There were tons of people even though it’s not
‘high’ season. Tucked throughout the most tiny narrow streets are the most
amazing and inspiring little shops. I kept seeing these little shops that make
sandals and adorned them in all kinds of jewels! I really wanted some but they
were 75 euros… and I am sure there are some just as cute at target for summer!

Pizzaplace

After we walked up and down and explored, we found a spot
and ate our last pizza. It was delicious. Fabulous.

It was time to hurry back to Sorrento and met up w/ our
driver who was hired to take us on a bit of a tour.

We didn’t know where- or
what – but you could tell that for some reason he knew we would love what he
had to show us. and indeed- he was right! What he had to show us was
spectacular! And these photos are my best attempt…

Last story, and then goodnight..

We got to our less-than-spectacular hotel here by the
airport, and about 7:30pm decided that we needed some food- so we talked to the
front desk, and they recommended a spot- but it’s not safe for us to walk
there… and so they called and asked them to come and pick us up. one of the
cooks shows up in a fiat that is rocking the loud music and we took off. Not too
far but definitely through a rough neighborhood. We got to this place- we were the
ONLY ones there to eat- there was no menu- he just offered us some options in Italian
and wendy and I just looked at each other and laughed! They made us a Caprese
salad and Brushetta… and some weird pasta plate that I was really too full to
eat, and then the crazy cook took us home. He told us his name was ‘Cheeto’. …
what a great adventure to end on! And now we sleep… excited to head home!
