More photo's from our recent trip to Italy's Amalfi coast,
this post is devoted to some of the quirkier things that we saw as we explored the region.
|These two ceramic figures hang on the wall of the terrace restaurant La Tagliata.|
Although they look like Laurel & Hardy they are in fact meant to be
the owner and his brother.
|By the side of the road just outside the small seaside town of Praiano |
we saw this miniature village.
During the Christmas period the scene is decorated and the houses are lit up from the inside.
|Cars are parked along both sides of the twisty road that hugs the mountainside. |
This is not a one way street!
La Tagliata's little orange fiat cinquecento regularly brings customers up the mountainside
from Positano down below.
The next four photographs were taken as we wandered around the gardens at La Tagliata, Montepertuso.
|Look closely and you'll see a peacock perched on a branch inside this cage.|
|Amazing ice cream flavours in Sorrento.|
|Newly weds on Spiaggia Grande, Positano.|
|We spotted this huge anchor by the quayside in Positano, |
no boat just the anchor!
Coming shortly, as a tribute to the 2012 RHS Chelsea Flower Show which is taking place this week, "Italian flowers and gardens"
