One of the things we were all looking forward to most during our holiday was the boating experience in the Amalfi Coast. We were surprisingly delighted to find how cheap the boat rentals were.

Another delightful excursion was our day trip around the island of Capri. It's about a 20 minute boat ride from Positano, but our boat took us out for 5 hours around the island. That day we visited the Blue Grotto, the Green Grotto, the White Grotto....by the time we were "Grotto-ed" out we were ready for some serious dining and shopping along the star-gazing streets of Capri (pronounced like "CAT-PEE" by the locals)
We caught a glimpse of this beautiful sailboat anchored on a deserted side of the island of Capri. As we edged closer to it.....and if you look really really hard......you can catch a glimpse of Gwen Stefani (No Doubt) and Gavin Rossdale (Bush) being catered to on their "honeymoon sailboat." We heard that the ROCK STAR couple was in town celebrating their honeymoon on Capri.
One of our favorite pastimes along with cruising our own boat, was finding a secluded cove, dropping anchor, and having our own private picnic on the boat equipped with vino, birra, antipasto, and surround sound music to watch the people sail by......
