When Life Gives You Lemons...

Make Limoncello!  At least that must be what the folks in Sorrento think.  We spent just a few days in Sorrento, just south of Naples, Italy--a perfect trip.  The drive down was right around 8 hours, and I stayed awake the entire time so that I didn't miss out on any of the beautiful scenery.  I even drove for part of it (wisely choosing the drive with the least amount of big/busy city traffic).

Anywho, we booked a place through (this is becoming more and more my favorite way to find lodging) called La Neffola.  It was a beautiful little oasis of a place--with lemon and cherry trees, wisteria vines, and all in all loveliness.

From here we could walk into the town where we found plenty of places to eat and shop!  Yay!  One store was called Lucy's and we found another shop called Mary.  That was kind of fun!
Breakfasts on the terrace with Mt. Vesuvius in the background.  We do not take these opportunities for granted.
yep, that's a Dr. Pepper, but you might be surprised to know that for our 3 night trip we only packed 4 total.  We're slacking off!

If you squint just right you can make out Vesuvius in the background behind Cory.

We brought home some lemons from the grove of trees, and we made a yummy lemonade...not limoncello.  :)
