Our last full day in Italy: a morning bus ride from Praiano to Positano - very pretty from afar (if impossible to draw, as I found after spending an hour or so at the task from our room's balcony), and then pretty enough close up, on the road into town - with beach umbrellas spread out waiting for the HORDES OF TOURISTS who packed the streets.
So we took refuge in the Cathedral - white and tranquil, with a Black Madonna over the altar, and on the bell tower, the most wonderful Merwolf (with a little wolf cub, and seven fishes - who knew that there was a wolf-mermaid creature out there?).
The city's benches are most stylish,
and the view is wonderful - but ultimately, we were very grateful to be back in peaceful Praiano, with the carefully curated lily arrangements (etc) in our outrageously stylish hotel.
