Capri


Hotel Caesar Augustus is in Anacapri, at the edge of the cliffs, high above the Gulf of Naples.
It offers spectacular views back over Marina Grande, Capri town, 
the west end of the island of Capri, and the Sorrentine peninsula in the distance.


As the sun begins to set, people wander out to the terrace
to wait for the sunset.  Last night the sky was unusually
clear, so there were not enough clouds to provide a gaudy sunset.

Capri is a beautiful place. The Villa San Michelle up in Anacapri is well worth a visit.

Capri holds a special place for me because I have enjoyed a painting since childhood, which I still have, of the town and the cliffs leading up to Anacapri. My father brought it back with him from his duty just after World War II when his ship was home ported in Naples.
