This Sunday I want to give a shout out to all the moms reading . . . Happy Mother’s Day!! You all most certainly deserve a shout-out every day! I send my love and wishes to my wonderful mother on this day, and wish we weren’t so far apart. My Mom’s favorite place in the world is Positano, which brings her tears of joy and emotion when she arrives. I never go to Positano without thinking of you, Mom!

Yesterday I took the boat to Positano in the morning, which is certainly the best way to arrive in the city. You see the wonderful vista of the city as you come into Port, and you arrive right in the center of town down on the beach. The Church of S. Maria Assunta is just steps away from where you land, as well as shops, restaurants and, of course, the beach! I tagged along with my boyfriend who was doing a tour, and while he worked I chatted with a friend, watched the seagulls flying around the beautiful dome of the church, and did a bit of shoe shopping. A note to shoppers: they make beautiful handmade leather shoes in Positano!

But the morning would have been all the better if I had been with my Mom. How about next Mother’s Day we do this together, Mom? Sounds perfect! To my mother and all the mother’s out there….

Happy Mother’s Day!!

    Tee hee, we both posted transversely about Positano! That is because she is our mother in a way.

    Ciao Mom! I could never do enough to say thank you for everything you have done for me. Our friendship now I treasure more than anything! All my love to you every day!

    Ciao Chuck! Glad you enjoyed the photos. The boat ride was really beautiful, and it was nice to see the summer getting started here on the Amalfi Coast.

    Ciao Lola! Your beautiful post and story just blew me away! Thank you for sharing such a wonderful memory of growing up in Positano, and telling the story so beautiful. Your writing is a real inspiration! Ciao bella!
