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.

Waiting for the ferry to Amalfi… fun beach hair and attitude in effect. Vacation life is GOOD!

The coastline to Amalfi was just as beautiful as it was on the way to Capri.

Bridges have been constructed in the most amazing places. They add so much to the coastline scenery.

 

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.

I didn’t have my swimsuit to go swimming with Greg. But, I at I least put my feet into the Tyrrhenian Sea.

We then snacked on some bruschetta and wine at Buca de Bacco before meandering back to our hotel to get ready for dinner.

Plastic cups will have to do for this toast… we adapt well.

Major vacation vibe here! We couldn’t be more relaxed and chill

 

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.

The buildings are so pretty all lit up at night.

Our favourite… with or without power. Maybe even better without 😉

The power outage was the cherry on top. So romantic and memorable.
