Day Five

The mornings were so gorgeous on our terrace with the sun sparkling on the water.

 

We took some time to check out the solarium terrance, at our hotel. Not much to speak of. There are about 8 loungers and the jacuzzi tub was not big enough for more that 4 people. There is a limited menu for food and drink, but you have to phone in your order using the house phone to place your order. However, we didnโ€™t order anything, nor did we see anyone else doing so. We laid out for about 45 minutes then moved on.

We went down to the hotel restaurant and had a early lunch, over looking the town and water. We were the only ones there, so it was like sitting on our own terrace. Nice.

The view from the hotel restaurant… not to bad. In fact, I think that every space in Positano.has a view. It is built up a cliff, so everything faces out to the water… perfection!

After lunch, we walked back into town stopping in at Buca de Bacco to enjoy a cool drink and take in the scenes. While there, we struck up a conversation with a guy we saw wearing a Toronto Blue Jays cap. After connecting some dots it turned out that he and Shoana both went to the same high school! Not only that, but we went there at the same time!! What are the chances? Unreal!

This was our go to for a quick drink to cool down or a pick me up coffee.

Because we had an early lunch we were hungry in the afternoon so we went back to our terrace and ordered a late lunch of salads and fruit. We added a bottle or rose to enjoy while we hung out for the afternoon and planed some more of our trip.ย In the planning stages of this vacation, we were told by friends that we had to visit or, if possible, stay in Capri. So, not wanting to ignore such wise advice, we spent the latter part of our afternoon researching Capri hotels. We decided on Hotel Della Piccolaย Marina. A small, 4 star hotel central to La Palazza.

Later in the evening, we had dinner at Covo dei Saraceni. A beautiful restaurant on the water near Spiaggia Grande. I know it sounds like a broken record, but the food and service was fantastic. The staff truly take great pride to ensure that guests enjoy their dining experience. To enhance the mood, a couple of musicians, maybe a father/daughter act, discreetly walked throughout the dining room playing a selection of romantic songs.
