Wednesday, Sorrento Day 12

rain 18 °C

WEDNESDAY, June 2 - Day 12 -

Up to a cool, misty day for our visit to the inlaid wood furniture and jewellery boxes and serving tray factory. Short example of how tools are made with John interested in old woodcutting like band saw. Ok, finally found the pic...ah...seems as if it is a video, as you can see John has a few camera problems but hey, he looks good.........lmao

Update...couldn't upload properly, will try later.

Then we had free time to sightsee…..so we thought….it started to rain and rain and rain and soon, we were soaked and I mean soaked….too many tourist, too little canopies on a hillside town. Did that stop us………no…….tours waiting, so we headed over to the ferry terminal and jumped the ferry to Capri Isle. I think it is beautiful but seeing as it rained torrentially all afternoon, we spent the time in an enclosed restaurant and enjoyed a three hour lunch, never once complaining about slow service. After all, we were wet and we were 1 of many wet people to find a dry place to hang out. Nothing beats a $50 Euro lunch does it?? From our short walk around Capri whilt it wasn’t pouring, it appears that Capri is for the rich and rich. Fancy high class shops with high class prices.

But good choice of the day…….John and I wore sandals…yippee, didn’t have the squish, squish of running shoes all day like others did!!

Arriving back at our hotel at 6, we were greeted with “Mr. Sun” who thereafter stayed in the sky till sunset. Oh, forgot to mention that locals say…it never rains on Amalfi Coast…only about 3 days a year”. So why did Vesuvius have to rain on us on our day? Oh, well, we have had more sun than cool or wet, so we can’t really complain.

The weather these days is really unpredictable. I guess I have to bring an umbrella and a raincoat too during our trip to Italy next week.
