... owner of the rental place rushed out in a boat to meet us with a look of relief on his face. He said the winds blew in unexpectedly and he was glad to see we were okay. His concern was only fleeting though. When I complained about the anchor not working he implied it was my fault and that I was lucky he didn't charge me for the missing anchor. I told him I'd be sure to mention him in my Trip Advisor review of his business and he refunded me some of the money. ;)
... had to resist buying ! We then wove our way back down the gorge to the beach again and stopped at La Pergola for a beer. This is a very pretty beach front aka touristy bar/ Ristorante, that was completely covered in Bouganvillea ( not yet flowering). There we stayed for an early dinner after which we climbed back up to our room for the ...
... streets to find a small italian restaurant..
Woke up to amazing sunshine again and had an amazing breakfast sitting in the rooftop restaurant with 500 other excitable Italians !!
At 11am (yes a very slow breakfast - but who wouldn't with this view) we had a quick wander down to the harbour and then set off in the car along the sea drive.
... winding our way along the coastal road towards Amalfi.
We are glad to be here mid-week and after the summer holiday crowds were gone. Even though the traffic is relatively light, the drive can still be treacherous at times. We are less frightened of going over a cliff than we were of the crazy drivers, scooters and BUSES that come hurtling around the hairpin turns. (Yikes!) By midday we made our way past the villages of Maoiri, Amalfi ...
... br> We arrived to the dock, everyone exits the boat, he said, "Everyone meet here at five." And we were all off and on our own way.
Channing and I were looking for a "Farmacia," he would need dramamine on the way back. We grabbed a water as well. Wondering where we were to go, I heard, "Charlie" from behind me. I thought to myself, "who is calling me, must be another Charlie." I turned around for the heck of it and there stood Courtney. She said, "I got my card ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHoliday House Gilda Positano
We were lucky enough to stay at Gilda's for 3 nights. What a place; the rooms are modest but with everything you need, the views are stunning and Gilda, Rosa and Giuseppe just want to do everything to make your stay the best it can be.
Gilda's is out of Positano, but that's not a problem - there are bus stops only about 30 metres away. We were happy to walk in each day, it's about 2 km down into the town (no footpaths but we felt quite safe)
The beach is nice, and we really enjoyed our daily swims (and the 300 steps to get down there)
The Amalfi coast - what can we say - Fantastico!!!!
We've just done 9.5 weeks of holiday and stayed in some great places but this is the best. Rosa, Gilda and the rest of her family make it special. Stay here.....
