On the road to Positano …

After arriving in Sorrento from Pompeii and a quick freshen up at Hotel Corallo, we were back on the road again … on the road to Positano, ‘a village clambering down a vertiginous slope to the sea’.     This time, in two small buses …. easier to negotiate the sharp twists and turns of the narrow coastal road ..

We stopped at a view point … a little hazy looking into the sun but breath-taking all the same  !!!!

Not only was it a view point overlooking Positano, but there was a shop filled with local goodies ( I regret not buying anything 😦 )  as well as juices, fruit and vegies, olive oils etc ..

We were given delicious icy cold lemon juice to drink and fresh fruit to nibble on – perfect for a hot afternoon ..

The white fruit is a type of lemon (the same one as was hanging on a stall in Pompeii)
