Last week I took the jet from Amalfi to Sorrento for the first time. Boarding the boat at 5pm, we chased toward the setting sun along the Amalfi Coast before passing the tip at Punta Campanella. Capri in the evening sunshine is glorious. But the jet resisted its allure and stayed on course to Sorrento where the sun was still shining. It was wonderful to see the Sorrento coastline from the sea and arrive into the port of Marina Piccola. While waiting for the minibus up to the center of Sorrento, the view of Mt. Vesuvius faintly in the distance drew me back toward the sea. Everything was blue—even the slope of Vesuvius had a deep hue—and so very calm.
Last Friday, Linda from News from Italy left a nice comment introducing me to her Foto Friday feature, which had a blue theme last week. Stop by her blog today to see what she has for this week. Wishing all of my readers a peaceful weekend!
Thanks for the link Laura! I am just about to publish today's choice 🙂
What a lovely way that was to spend an evening travelling from Amalfi to Sorrento by sea.

What a beautiful way to end the day!
Ciao Linda! You are very welcome. Look forward to popping over and seeing your Friday photo pic now. Buon Ferragosto anche a te! 🙂
Ciao Andi! It was certainly a beautiful boat ride. Lovely to be in Sorrento in the evening where there is a lot of life and energy.
I think I'm going to have to bookmark this post- looking at that photo has such a relaxing effect.
Have a great Ferragosto.
Lovely photo! I imagine you had a lovely evening in Sorrento, too! Happy holiday weekend.
Ciao Karen! There is certainly something soothing about those blues. 🙂
Ciao Saretta! It was a nice evening in Sorrento. Thanks! 🙂 That's a good time to be there as the the day tourists are gone and the evening passeggiata is great.
