Roving Pic: Santa Maria Assunta and the Sea

Santa Maria Assunta and the Sea
July 2011

The clouds had cleared leaving behind blue skies and bluer seas. Positano was positively in bloom as we made our way down the steep cobblestone street to the seaside. To our right were shops with hand-crafted ceramics painted by hand, limoncello vendors vending their legendary liqueurs and balconies with the locals' laundry billowing in the lemon-scented breeze. To our left was this view. Heads sufficiently turned, we continued our descent, eagerly awaiting the next discovery Positano had planned for us.

Incredibly beautiful photo! I love the bright yellow on the roof paired with the fuscia in the flowers!

Ah, I can even smell it! What is limoncello like? I hear about it all the time but have never tried it. Beautiful photo too!

Meghan- Thanks! We liked this view a lot.

Hi Hannah! Limoncello is strong. But a little bit is great following a big Italian meal.
