After our day at the Blue Grotto and swimming in the sea, we enjoyed wine and cheese on the balcony of our hotel room. The balcony overlooked the sea and the harbor called Marina Grande. It was extremely romantic.
“One year ago, we could have never imagined we’d be sitting on a balcony overlooking the Mediterranean at sunset, sipping wine and eating cheese as a married couple,” I told JB.
While at dinner that night, we ordered some more wine, and well, that meant I consumed about one bottle of wine myself. I was a bit looped.
We were joined by several cats at dinner (we ate outside), and were entertained by some dumb American tourists that took way too long to decide what to order. Maybe it was the amount of wine we had consumed, but we could hardly suppress our laughter while listening to a lady that was fascinated by the idea of Grilled Fish (she repeated Grilled Fish at least ten times), but then she was unhappy because all she really wanted at this seafood restaurant was ‘meat’. I guess you had to be there.
After dinner, we took a walk along the beach, despite the fact that it started raining.
The next morning, which was Friday, we went for a swim in the hotel pool. This wasn’t just any hotel pool. It was set up on a cliff overlooking the ocean, and was filled with salt water. It was a nice, long pool, suitable for lap swimming. I have never done laps in such a scenic pool! It was like swimming in heaven, I tell you!
We then checked out and took the Vomit Comet (i.e. boat) back to Naples. In Naples, we ate lunch at a very nice restaurant where the waiter complimented me on my Italian (ha!). I ordered a Calzoni, which was nothing like I expected. I swear the thing was a foot long! JB thought he ordered tortellini and got a sandwich. Oops.
We then took a tour of the Royal Palace in Naples, and hopped on a train bound for Florence.
Random thought: the Bidets have been rather entertaining!
