Beautiful blues on the Amalfi Coast
Leave me alone with a view like that and some sort of photographic device and you can bet that I’ll try to capture it in some way. That’s what I did with my several year old simple Samsung phone this morning when looking out at the blue sky and sea. What a glorious spring day!
Blossoms on the trees
It’s just so beautiful today that I had to try to take a few photos to share! In the sunshine it looked like they hadn’t come out at all, so imagine my surprise when I downloaded them . . . → Read More: Glorious April Weather
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.)

Waiting for the sun
It has been raining on the Amalfi Coast and throughout much of Italy. A lot. This is the rainy time of year, but one does tend to miss the sun after awhile. Earlier this week I looked out the bedroom window to this view of a rain storm passing by at sea. Just after the storm the horizon was clear with a little touch of pink from the sunset. Nature is so massively beautiful that it’s hard to miss the sun too much with spectacular shows like this. Wishing you a sunny weekend!

The first taste of winter on the Amalfi Coast!
Yesterday morning we awoke to a wintry surprise … snow! A cold front blew down from the mountains overnight and left a light dusting of snow at the highest elevations along the Amalfi Coast. Even at the top of Scala the cars were covered with a slushy white covering we don’t see all that often here. I bundled up and went out first thing in the morning for a hair cut appointment in Ravello. I forgot to grab my camera before heading out the door, but I did snap a few photos . . . → Read More: November Snow on the Amalfi Coast
A Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde Spring Day
This has been one of those days that just couldn’t make up its mind. Beautiful spring morning … sure thing! Sudden thunder and hailstorm with pounding down rain … why not? My husband called mid morning to say batten down the hatches (well, he didn’t really say that … but now I wonder if there’s a similar expression in Italian?) since he was on the boat to Capri that sailed through that big black storm. I did fix the outside shutters in place, unplugged all the electronics and took in the newly planted . . . → Read More: Spring Showers on the Amalfi Coast
