Travel Photo Thursday | Port In Naples

Travel Photo Thursday | Port In Naples

This picture reminds me of why I’m so fond of Italy.  Seeing the muted toned villas disappear as our motorboat leaves the port in Naples, brings its real beauty into focus.  I’m enthralled with the crystal clear clarity of the turquoise colored waters that my daughter said reminded her of Botticelli ‘s “Birth of Venus”.

Add the majestic Mount Vesuvius with its lush, sprawling greenery in the background and you have all the makings of your own little Shangri la.  Little did I know how much better things would get when we were transferred to a dinghy that would usher us into the Blue Grotto at the base of the Isle of Capri.  It was refreshing to see how beautiful and unspoiled those waters were.   I miss it.

    You know, Renee, I’m off to Italy at the end of February, starting with the carnival in Venice, then working my way up and down again. Naples is on my schedule and I can’t wait to be off.

      Akila!! Thank you! I wish that I could take the credit! I happened to see Runaway Jane’s redo and asked her who made her new banner and she reminded me that John and Aly with Hop and Jaunt were traveling graphic designers. So, John is the one who should take full credit…he was fantastic to work with too. Thanks for coming by!
