Dinner at Le Sirenuse

We had breakfast served on our terrace at 7:30 to enjoy our last full day in Positano and this incredible view. I went into town to do some shopping alone and gave Brad the morning off. It is his first day that he doesn’t have to drive or shop! He agreed to meet me for pizza at 12:30. I picked up a few gifts, some ceramic house numbers and a scarf for me. I also bought just the right size small ceramic baking dish to duplicate the pecorino with honey we enjoyed so much in Pienza. I had a latte and sfogliatelle Anagosta in Bar Pasticceria La Zagara di Positano, sitting in the garden terrace surrounded by lemon trees. I wrote in my journal and spoke to three women from Florida. I ran into Jan and we played “show and tell” with our shopping treasures. We sat for a while until Brad met me for lunch and Jan continued her shopping.

I had my Positano favorite pizza of sausage/smoked mozzarella. Brad and I stopped in the cathedral, and the candle we lit for our dog, Id, lit up immediately. We were amused that our dog, Id, did always like being near water. Maybe he preferred being remembered in Positano than at the Church of St. Francis of Assisi with everyone else’s pets!

We returned to repack, relax, download pictures and get ready for our splurge dinner at the Sirenuse. We met Les for a drink at 7:30. It started raining as we were leaving, so there was no outside dining, but it looked like a fairyland in the Sirenuse dining room. Each table had a potted plant with a candelabra, holding eight or 12 tea lights as a centerpiece. There were hanging candelabras as well with 20 or more lights each, and the whole effect was beautiful. Brad and I shared pasta with lemon juice, olive oil, parsley and a flavoring of anchovy. It was light and delicious. Then we had a tasty almond crusted rack of lamb. The rain stopped by the time we finished dinner.
