One day I was having lunch on my own in Ravello, or at least I thought I was having lunch on my own. I looked up from the table to see along the top of the mountains the face of a man with a bulbous nose and prominent chin. I’ve heard locals point out several faces in the outline of the mountains above Maiori. For me, this is the Old Man of the Mountain sleeping above Maiori. Although he slumbers, he’s pretty good lunch company seeing as he always brings a smile to my face.

Tee Hee! My son has since pointed out a sleeping dragon just past Fornillo Beach.
I hope you are safe from the fires in your area 🙁
Ciao Rosa! Wow … a sleeping dragon! 🙂 Thanks for your comment about the fires … all is just fine. It’s strange, the fire was just above the house, but they must have put it out over night. I read about it online, too! I looked out the window … thankfully no fire! But I know there are so many on the coast right now. Wish we could get a good solid rain to help!

I remember the first time the old man of the mountain was pointed out to me from a beautiful terrace in Ravello. 🙂
So happy to bring back that nice memory for you, Linda! 🙂
