|Positano rising up the mountain side seen from Spiaggia Grande|
Well, the rain that has been falling almost non stop since we picked up our hire car on Saturday has finally stopped, for now!
I have lots of pix to share but first the bad news........................
On Saturday afternoon as we approached the final leg of our journey from Naples to Montepertuso we found ourselves in the middle of an autobus sandwich!
On a very narrow road which consisted of one hairpin bend after another.
I guess it was inevitable..........................
whilst reversing back down the mountain the SP backed into the rail guard and bashed the car.
The carbinieri arrived, the driver of the local football team bus (the one that made
us back down) was given a ticket (YAY!) and after about 20 minutes we completed the last 100 yards of the journey.
Now the good news.
The family who own and operate La Tagliata
welcomed us with open arms, insisting that we eat a little something to recover from the journey.
|Some of the antipasti from Saturday's lunch|
Antonietta and Peppe brought eight plates of antipasti to our table, also red wine and still water, then refused to let us pay for the meal!
We were so
replete that we didn't eat dinner that evening!

|Breakfast Italian style.|
Eggs, grapefruit juice, fresh fruit, toast & conserves,
|Limone and Limone Grande grow abundantly in the terraced gardens.|
You may just be able to see a small island in the background?
This is one of the legendary sirens from Greek mythology.
I see it every morning as I sit in bed & drink my tea!
So, now you know where we're living for the next couple of weeks, I'll be back again in a few days with more photos of the area, around and about.
