Before I get on with Wednesday…..I took the tile pattern that I had photographed yesterday……
…..and turned it into a quilt design…..
On Wednesday morning, Michael left to spend the day at the University and I headed out to do a bit of shopping. I hit a few stores but then got distracted as I caught sight of the open water…..
I made my way to the Promenade and enjoyed a stroll along the shoreline…..
When headed one direction, I could see the the tour boats in the background and the crowds coming toward me…..
At this point it was time for me to return to my shopping!!!
Naples is a city built on several levels as evidenced by these two photos……
At the grocery store, I took a few photos that show some of the differences between here and home…..
These funky carts are available for anyone who wants them…..
….and you add a basket (or two if you have a lot of stuff to buy)…..
I bought some wonderful fresh eggs and even got pick out which ones I wanted……
Most of the packs held either 4 or 6 eggs….I didn’t see a dozen anywhere!!!
When you are ready to check out, you join the queue in front of the frozen foods…..
I guess that this makes perfect sense since everyone knows that you always buy your frozen stuff last!!!
As I was walking back to the flat, I encountered the saddest sight of the day……
….a sign saying that the Lift (elevator) that takes you up the 6 flights of stairs to our street level, is out of service!!!!
I spent the rest of the afternoon working on accounting stuff and Michael arrived home about 20 minutes before a HUGE thunderstorm hit. It proceeded to thunder, lightning and rain REALLY hard for the next 4 hours!!! It is supposed to do the same all of tomorrow (Thursday) so we may have another quiet day to look forward to.
One thought on “A quiet day in Naples”
Aren’t you pleased you could move away from those big crowds?
