Pebbles from Positano

..  from Positano’s beach in fact 🙂

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 ..

Wished I could have bought a few .. more than a few … pieces of hand-painted pieces of crockery and other goodies.  I love, love, love the colours !

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

Found the beach !!!!

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

No time to linger … back up the narrow steep streets .. .up and up ..

…. passing the paintings .. yet again ..   😦  and not stopping to buy one .. not even a tiny one regretfully 😦

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 ..

… back to the hotel to watch the sun go down while we had our dinner (featured in post :  ‘Two nights in Sorrento’

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!!!
