Special Sun-Splashed Places

February days in Canada bring on daydreams of sunny warm places! My subconscious desires for warmth must have been driving the subject choices for these 2 art cards.

17 - Positano from the Beach

17 – Positano from the Beach

 

Positano is a dream I had for years that I’ve now been blessed to have visited a number of times. It never fails to lure me back like the legendary Sirens that supposedly lived on the small islands opposite this beautiful cliffside town. Positano is a dream a friend of mine also had – she kept a picture of Positano with her through her fight with breast cancer. And in 2007, the two of us sat on the terrace at Bar Bruno in Positano and toasted her victory over this disease and to the power of Positano! It will forever be a very special sun-splashed place! This art card is one view up the cliff from the main town beach.

 

 

 

18 - Locorotondo Street

18 – Locorotondo Street

In 2011, I visited Puglia, and spent a week discovering the cities and towns in the central and southern parts of the region. And in July – ouch! But there was something cooling about walking through these village streets with their whitewashed houses and smooth travertine and limestone walkways. Then there is the decorative Baroque ironwork on windows, balconies and doors, and the multitude of flowers to distract you from the heat. This art card captures one such street in Locorotondo, which has the designation as one of the most beautiful villages in Italy. If you are considering a trip to Puglia, here’s a great place to stay, close to Locorotondo.

  1. Do you know Sheryl McDougald of Raincoast Studio, here on WP; she’s also from Canada and did some posts of her trip last year to Puglia with friends. Easy to find them as she doesn’t post frequently. That street scene is very enticing! As for Positano, well, have I mentioned before it is one of three places in Italy I would choose to live, if only I were a mountain goat! lol. The others are Amalfi and Sicily, probably Palermo. I understand the beauty of the place is probably what lured people there and, hence, the myth of the Siren song. Don’t quote me ‘tho.

    • Thanks for Sheryl’s blog info – as soon as I saw her latest entry with espresso cups, I was hooked! Not sure where I’d live in Italy. Too many places touched me. But as I keep returning to Florence, maybe that’s a clue!
