Gone fishin’ on a sunny day in Amalfi
No, not me! I’m not cut out for fishing. Sitting by the sea lost in a book, yes. Fishing, not so much. But I like to watch other people fish. It’s fascinating to me to see the focus, the patience and the connection with the sea. I spotted this gentleman in Amalfi wearing a vibrant red sweater and with all his attention on the task at hand. It’s a moment I’m glad I captured as it’s one I’ll treasure for a long time. Wishing you a wonderful weekend with plenty of time to . . . → Read More: Foto Friday: Gone Fishin’
Amalfi and the sea as depicted in a hand-painted ceramic scene on the Ristorante Lido Azzurro in Amalfi
The people of Amalfi have always had a strong connection to the sea. Not just because of the town’s geographic setting, but because of something that seems to run deep in the blood. This is the something that led those Amalfitani in the Middle Ages to head out across the sea to other parts of the world, to sail those same seas home again and then turn around and do it all over again. And we’re not talking a day trip to Capri . . . → Read More: Return to the Sea
Glorious sunshine in Amalfi
There’s nothing quite like when the sun comes out in February after a rainy spell. There’s the warmth of the sunshine to dry everything out, but also that sense of spring on its way. It’s hopeful, warm and irresistible. And not just for the Amalfitani! We took an afternoon stroll in Amalfi this afternoon and had fun spotting all the people out enjoying the sunshine – tourists, locals, fishermen and kids playing soccer on the waterfront promenade.

Sweet words in chocolate at the Pasticceria Pansa in Amalfi
Love is in the air … and not just for Valentine’s Day today. It’s sunny and beautiful on the Amalfi Coast! This morning I snapped this shot of the chocolate on display and the buildings of Amalfi reflected in the curved glass windows of the Pasticceria Andrea Pansa in Piazza Duomo. The white chocolate bar says, “Ti amo,” which means, “I love you.” How’s that for something sweet for your sweetheart? Wishing everyone a day full of love … Buon . . . → Read More: Foto Friday: Buon San Valentino!
Watching the waves crash in Amalfi
There was a little break in the bad weather, but it came back in a dramatic way this weekend! The rain and wind storm Sunday morning is up there in the top 10 bad storms I’ve seen since moving to the Amalfi Coast. This was one of those close-the-shutters-put-on-the-red-sparkly-shoes-and-hope-the-house-doesn’t-blow-away sort of storms. Just before we went out to join friends for lunch the sky cleared and we made a mad dash to the car. Well, as madly as one can dash up steps while wearing Hunter rain boots. (Note: Don’t try that at home kids.)
