Last week was been crazy, from a weekend away to a two day migraine to three days in Detroit with the Manic Mommies Chevy Mavens (more on that later), so needless to say I haven’t had much time to write. Luckily my daughter wrote something when we were in Positano that I wanted to share with you, along with some pictures of Positano that attempt to capture the beauty of this special place.

Kid’s Turn: Positano

The beach is amazing — I watch the waves roll onto the hot stones.
I watch the children playing happily in the ocean.
I feel free in the warm waters of the sea.
The sea foam lures me into the water.
I listen to the gulls calling and remember how lucky I am to be here.
I plunge into the sea.
The aquamarine waters of the Mediterranean Sea fill me with joy.
I look out even further, to the sapphire blue water of the deep ocean.
I look up and see the cliffs that are the foundation of houses and shops.
The natural beauty of this world stuns me.
I look at the towering rocks and feel happiness rising inside.

The houses perched on the side of the cliff are an engineering feat

The light streaming down made it hard to get good photos because it was so bright
