Yoo hoo Sister! Your post today got me in an Amalfi frame of mind. I am supposed to be polishing silverware but instead I am looking at my travel journal from 2008!
I am recalling many of the same things you are. But do you remember that we almost missed the ferry and while I was getting the tickets you ran down to the boat and yelled at them to wait for us? I also carefully recorded your bout with nausea and how we concluded that the best place to throw up on a ferry boat is overboard.
I can still taste Le Sireneuse as we sat by the pool and looked out at the incredible view and pinched ourselves and said "we are on the amalfi coast!" I remember that along with listening to the man being interviewed we could hear the sea splashing up on the rocks below.
Remember how when we got back to Amalfi from Positano we saw the Italian water polo players practicing in their kayaks? How about when we arrived in Praiano and rushed to Tutto per Tutti for supplies and bought those beautiful red tomatoes that we roasted with olive oil? And last but not least remember how we moved the table in the living room in front of the big balcony windows so we could see the silvery moon while we ate?
Hmmm I better get off this trip down memory lane and back to thanksgiving preparation. Next up: cilantro chopping and gourd arranging.
