Our Honeymoon: Second Day in Positano

We slept in a bit (which was lovely) on our second day in Positano. Part of what we loved about our time in this town was that there wasn't anything else to do other than relax and enjoy the beauty of the outdoors.

We got ready and then headed out to explore the town a bit.  Even though there were no real sightseeing activities, we wanted to wander in and out of all the little shops.  With the town built into the mountain, we got our exercise climbing up and down all the stairs.

Once we made it to the "center" of town, we checked out a lot of the little shops.  It was definitely an adventure since everything is on the main road, and cars are coming by within inches of where you can walk.

Adam found an awesome linen shirt, and we also picked up our standard magnet souvenir and got a postcard in the mail to Connor. It was neat checking out all the little shops, even if there wasn't anything else we necessarily wanted to buy.

After a bit, we found a little cafe to have some lunch. And dessert, which was of course the best part.

Next, we went down to the beach and looked into renting a boat.  We felt like we had done the whole "lounge on the beach" thing yesterday, and we thought it would be fun to take a boat out for a few hours.  It was hands down one of the best things we did on the entire trip, and this ended up being one of our favorite days of the honeymoon.

We drove up and down the coast for a while.  Adam loved driving us around, and the views were incredible.

We stopped at one point in an area away from everyone else and put down the anchor.  We got out and swam for a while.  The water was SO clear and the perfect temperature.

The time went by way too quickly, but it was definitely an amazing few hours.  We hung out on the beach for a little bit before making our way back up toward our hotel.  We picked up a bottle of wine on the way.  After cleaning up, we sat out on our balcony for the rest of the afternoon and just enjoyed the view and each other's company.

After a while, we set out to find dinner.  We wandered down the road and checked out a few different places, and we finally landed at one where we had a great view of both the town and the water.

Our waiter had to keep crossing back and forth over the main road to get to and from the actual restaurant, but this was the norm in Positano.  So many of the restaurants have outdoor seating with great views!

We ended up having a true long, italian dinner, sitting there for quite a while.  It also turned out to be one of the best dinners we had on the whole trip, and before long it was almost dark as we finished our food and wine.

After dinner, we went back down to the cafe we had lunch at so that we could get another cannoli.

We headed back to our hotel and once again relaxed on the balcony to savor our last evening in this coastal town before heading to bed.
