The sun is out and the weather has warmed up significantly since last week. These are the beautiful autumn days that I love, with the changing colors of the trees and grape vines glowing brilliantly in the sun. I’ve so enjoyed doing these color themed posts over this past month, and remembering the beautiful memories from the summer. But you know I couldn’t end this series without blue! After all, it’s the color of the sea and sky and the fishing boats and so much more here on the Amalfi Coast. While I love the change of seasons, I’m also a bit blue that summer is coming to an end. It sure was a good one!

    No, you couldn't skip the blues. It is even more intense on a winter's day. My favourite season there is about to start – the no tourist season 🙂 Just the sound of the sea and moi!

    Ciao Laurie! Thanks for stopping by and introducing yourself. I love hearing from readers! I'm so happy you had a wonderful vacation here this summer. It's so easy to fall in love with this place, isn't it? 🙂 Next time you visit, please do drop me a line! Until then, sending you warm wishes from the Amalfi Coast!

    Ciao Amber! Grazie! I had to include that last photo, because it was by far one of the most amazing days of the summer. We renting a small boat and went all along the Amalfi Coast and the Li Galli islands off of Positano. That's the way to really see the coast and find the best swimming spots!
