Day Dreaming...a return to the Amalfi Coast

Category: Vacations | Posted: Tue Feb 16, 2010 9:08 pm

This afternoon when I was reorganizing and backing up digital photographs I came across our photos from a cruise we took to the Mediterranean in 2007.
It was one of our favorite cruises. It certainly brightened my day (it's cold, gray & flurring again). For those of you who are color deprived I will share some of my favorites from our day on the Amalfi Coast.

We took a 9 hour bus tour from Naples and toured a good portion of the Amalfi Coast, spectacular scenery. We stopped in Sorrento, Positano, & Amalfi.
It is a very winding narrow road. Several times our driver had to get out and direct traffic so we could continue.

The arm you see in the bottom right corner is the guy sitting in front of me...if the windows of the bus were open we could shake hands with the people on the bus that is passing us.

Most of these photos were taken from the bus window.

Back on the ship in the Port of Naples. Hope you all enjoyed the tour. Today was a great day to go through the photographs...lots of color.


We also visited Sicily, Santorini, Mykonos,Athens, Rhodes, Rome & Ephesus on this cruise. Those photos must be on my other computer.

I don't know which I enjoyed more - the gardens or the views. Looks like it was a beautiful time of year to be there. Don't you love these kinds of memories?

Yes, that why I love to take photographs. We went in the middle of September 2007.

Those beautiful fotos do it for me, Gail!
All that sun just warms me right up...good for the eyes too.

Lovely break from these winter blah days where it has been raining for over 48 straight! Thanks for sharing and brightening an otherwise gloomy day.
