Heavy traffic and persistent rain accompanied us on the first leg of our weekend jaunt to Capri. After some delay we finally reached the port of Molo Beverello in Naples, where we joined other soaked trippers in the queue for ferry tickets. We had a short wait before the ferry was due to depart, so we took refuge in the nearest cafe for some warmth and promise of a snack. The coffee proved warm and delicious alongside a ‘sfogliatella’ – one of my favourite pastries. Once aboard the ferry the rest of the journey was hitch free depsite the continuing rain! An inauspicious start perhaps, but it proved otherwise. The weekend visit to this beautiful island was enchanting. More photos to follow!
