2019-08-18 Isola di Capri to Cala Punta di Sogno, Amalfi Coast, Italy

A stunning morning in Marina Piccola in south east of the Island of Capri
The villa, Il Fortino was owned by famous bygone actress Gracie Fields
Our family off to explore the area by paddle board
Locals with their delightful small day boat
Betsey is keen to start paddling!!
Our granddaughter has no fear of jumping off the passerelle on the stern of the boat
With the water temperature around 28 degrees it is hard not to spend a lot of time enjoying the sea
After lunch we decide to pull up our anchor and continue east towards the Amalfi Coast
We say goodbye to the Faragnoli Rocks which protect the famous bay, Marina Piccola
We leave before the huge flotilla of day tripper boats arrive in the bay
Goodbye to the beautiful Island of Capri
It is not long before we approach the narrow western tip of the Amalfi Coast, south of the beautiful town of Sorrento
Torre di Montalto, an ancient castle stands high up on the rugged cape
Continuing along the southern coast towards the pretty seaside town of Nerano
Nerano is a popular destination for boats as there are many mooring buoys available for hire
Ashore there are many nice restaurants and shops
We continue on and pass Marina di Recommone which has a wonderful restaurant called Ristorante La Conca del Sogno which we have booked for dinner this evening
The stunning coastline looking back to the island of Capri in the distance
Motoring a short distance along the coast we look for a nice spot to drop the anchor for the afternoon
Later we return to Marina di Recommone to pick up one of the restaurant moorings which are available for patrons dining in the restaurant
There are some spectacular looking boats in this part of Mediterranean
More jumping and swimming before getting ready for dinner
A young man from the restaurant arrives punctually to collect us for dinner
It is a short trip by dinghy to the Restaurant
This is our second visit to Ristorante La Conca del Sogno …… our previous visit was with our Tasmanian visitors, Don and Susie in 2015
Cocktail time!!
Photo time !!!
We all had a wonderful evening enjoying excellent wine and fabulous food at Ristorante La Conca del Sogno
