Sorrento

After a “continental breakfast” (included in our room rate) consisting of generous serves of muesli, fruit, croissants and rolls and more, we ventured down the peninsula to Sorrento.   The day was cool and cloudy, but there was no sign of rain.

Lunch was at The Baths, our first visit after it was rebuilt after a fire a few years back.  Very pleasant welcome and nice food, although the kitchen was slightly slow I thought (not really complaining just mentioning).  We were amazed that the carpark at the Back Beach when we headed there was completely full – we had stumbled on a memorial service.    I returned later, when things were less hectic and. yes, the timeless atmosphere of the back beach is intact!

After a stroll around the shops, we headed to the Sorrento Hotel for “coffee with a view”, thence back to our accommodation to get ready for dinner.
