Day Nine – Our Last Day
This is our last day in Positano. Although a sign of a good vacation is looking forward to home, we will miss Positano.
Our day was spent taking some time exploring the town of Amalfi. Not to poo poo on the town whose namesake is shared with this magnificent part of Italy, but we did not enjoy it. The beauty and architecture, notwithstanding, Amalfi just didn’t have that sense of invitation that Positano offers. I certainly wouldn’t tell others to avoid Amalfi. It just wasn’t for us.
That being said, getting to Amalfi was wonderful. We took a ferry over. Motoring along the Amalfi Coast was breathtaking. So much beauty.
I (Greg) celebrated our return to Positano by finally taking a dip in the Tyrrhenian Sea. A natural water baby, I enjoyed every minute of it.
We then snacked on some bruschetta and wine at Buca de Bacco before meandering back to our hotel to get ready for dinner.
Back to Next 2 for the third time. When we arrived, we quickly learnt that there was a power outage. But, the kitchen was still able to prepare a limited menu. This did not dissuade us and we were graciously shown to a fantastic table.
Our last dinner in Positano couldn’t have been more romantic. The tables were illuminated by candlelight, the sky was clear and the moon and stars were bright . That’s amore.
Despite the limited menu choice, the selection was still outstanding.
About mid way through dinner, the lights came back on. I’m sure the kitchen and staff were pleased, but we were really enjoying the intimacy. However, it certainly did not spoil the night.
Again, Marco expertly took care of us making our last dinner in Positano a great experience. Thank you.
