Cruising to Capri, Italy - Skywatch Friday

The Isle of Capri is located off Naples, Italy. It is a marvelous place to visit for the day. Be sure to bring your comfortable walking shoes as it is quite hilly. You travel from the harbor at Naples via boat and I recommend you sit towards the center as the ride can be quite choppy and lead to sea-sickness. I did ok coming and going and was thankful for that. I had planned to do the grotto tour but the sea was too choppy that day. You can see that we went out in the motor boat to the cave area and how the wind was whipping the waves about in a couple of the photographs. Enjoy.

Be sure to check out Sky Watchers from all over the world at SkyWatch Friday.

My World - Horsing Around in the Piazza della Repubblica-Florence, Italy

This lovely carousel is located in the Piazza della Repubblica in Florence, Italy. I always make a point to stop by this lovely Piazza and have tea and watch the children on the carousel. This year was no exception. I think the horses are beautiful with the feather plumes atop their heads.

Be sure to stop by the MY WORLD meme hosed by the MyWorld Team of: Klaus | Sandy | Ivar | Wren | Fishing Guy | Louise. It's a great meme and I so enjoy photos from around the world and know you will too.
