Somehow I always end up with the tough jobs like cleaning the beach toys on a hot and sunny day whereas Sheila gets to do the fun parts like laundry and shopping. At 9:30 this morning it was 25 degrees Celsius and the ocean is 21. I thought of taking the little dinghy out, but then got too busy watching all the toys dry.
We took the ferry from Positano to Amalfi today and will spend the rest of the week in this cute little town. It was once very big and important with over 70,000 inhabitants, but an earthquake and tsunami on 25 November 1343 destroyed most of it and the town is much smaller today (a little over 5,000 inhabitants plus a few tourists). There are many nice walks in the area and we went on one today, up the valley behind the town, 2 hours of strenuous hiking up the hills and down a long staircase. The weather is hot and sunny, so a beer after the hike was much appreciated.
