Yesterday Nathan had the day off (a Saturday...in June...it's a MIRACLE!) so we hopped a ferry and went to see the Island of Procida. Procida is one of the Flegrean Islands off the coast of Naples...it is tiny (something like 1.6 square miles) and BEAUTIFUL.
|Waiting for the ferry. You can see Procida in the backgroud.|
|We got off the ferry, and went in search of a hat for me (gotta protect my Danish skin!...now we just have to talk Nathan into wearing one) and someplace to eat.|
About half way up to the monastery/lookout point, we came across this church. Pretty huh?
|Statue and church behind it. (You can see this church in the large pic below)|
|We walked across the island, up to the monastery and got this view...gorgeous, eh? It's called the Painted City.|
|Us...me in my Kentucky Derby hat.|
|The view from our table at lunch...the cement building up on the top is the monastery.|
|Calamari, zucchini, carrot, potato...fried|
|Swordfish and green pepper spaghetti|
After lunch we walked back up the hill and back across the island to the beach. Stopping to get gelato of course. :)
|Not sure what to think of the sand.|
|Daddy buried me.|
Procida was amazing and I'm pretty sure it will not be the last time we visit.
