Greetings from Naples

We had a lovely day in Cefalu (pronounced Chefalu) yesterday though it was a bit hilly and poor Sadie's knees were knackered by the time we got back to the bus for the trip back to the ship. It took about an hour to get there and it was absolutely gorgeous. The water was a beautiful turquoise. We wanted to go to the Cathedral (apparently there was a wedding on when the other's got there so they could only stay a couple of minutes) but the hill was too steep so we walked to the beach and rested there for a while then made our way to a restaurant for some lunch before heading back to the beach. I took advantage of Sadie having a rest on the beach to take some pictures which I'll post when I get back. It's a wonder people still live in the buildings as they look as if a gust of wind would blow them down! We had a gorgeous limone icecream to cool us down :-D
Today we got the bus to Sorrento which is beautiful too. It's quite scary driving on the windy roads up the mountain then down again into the valley to our destination. The Italians are crazy drivers and there really is no rhyme nor reason to how they drive. Right of way??? What's that?!! We went to the main square where we got to do what we wanted. We had hoped to go to the beach for a bit but it was another local bus ride away and I didn't want to take the chance of getting lost and missing the bus so we just wandered about the markets, had lunch and people watched.
Tomorrow we're berthing in Toulon France where we were told by a waiter last night that they have fantastic markets. We've decided to do this one on it's own so we can have a bit of a lie in. These organized tours get you up at the crack of dawn! Then maybe we can get a couple of hours lying in the sun on the ship.
Catch ya later x
