On a Sunny Saturday in April

Ciao Amalfi Coast Blog Sunny Saturday April

Beautiful blues and greens in Amalfi on a sunny Saturday in April

It amazes me each spring just how quickly we can forget certain things. Dinner with the gas heater blazing by the table for warmth, the hot water bottle (or cat) sitting on my lap to keep my fingers warm enough to keep typing and that old “for the rain it raineth every day” attitude. But then one day I noticed that it has been several days since we’ve turned the heater on for dinner and my fingers are no longer so cold. It’s the sun – it makes us forget all those cold days of winter and look forward only to the warmth of spring.

This morning the sky was clear blue and after a busy week it was time to enjoy a walk in the sunshine. Much needed – both the break and the sunshine! Here’s what was happening in Amalfi this sunny Saturday morning in April.

Gorgeous colors of spring looking toward the Amalfi harbor

I love the brilliant green of the sea today. That peculiar color is a leftover from the bad weather the last few days. Here’s hoping that spring sticks this time and that we’re done with winter until next year!

    We must have just missed each other! I was there too and noticed that red open top bus! We caught a bus to Bomerano and walked back to Positano on the Pathway of the Gods. I’ll send you a text next time I’m over your way just in case you’re around!

      Hi Nicki! Too funny since I had already bumped into Valerie and Bryan from My Bella Basilicata. We could have had a blogger meet up! 😉 Yes, please do send me a message next time you’re over this way. Would love to do that Pathway of the Gods walk with you one of these days, too!

      Hi Anne! I hope spring comes soon for the UK. I think we’ve all had enough winter for this year! 😉

    Hello! I just “saw” your comment on Lindy’s blog and came to look at what you are doing over here, as I’too, have a house in Campania (Cilento-we can see Capri from our terrace!)
    I actually wanted to follow your blog, but I don’t see how I can do it, plus, I don’t have Facebook.

    I am Italian, from the city of Bari, in Puglia, and have an Italian Cookery blog, with little memories, from my life in Italy, which introduce every recipe.

    I like your blog and I have already had a good look! It’s very nice!

      Ciao Anna! Thank you so much for stopping by Ciao Amalfi and for your kind words. Your views sound heavenly from your home on the Cilento coast! I can see the coastline all the way down to Punta Licosa from our house. If you want to follow my blog, there’s an option to subscribe to blog posts in the upper righthand corner. Honestly … I’m not really sure what that means or if it will be helpful. 🙂 I am working on starting a monthly newsletter, so perhaps that will be a convenient way to follow once I set it up. Thanks again for stopping by. I look forward to following your blog, too! Warm wishes, Laura

      Ciao Beth, keep counting ’em down! Have a wonderful time on the Amalfi Coast!

    Amalfi Coast remains a dream to me (sob), but I know I’ll be there some day

      Hi Lann, I hope that some day comes very soon! 🙂
