"So on our newly revised leisurely drive"
out of Amalfi trying to get back towards Roma, we find a sign for a seaside town of Maiore. This turned out to be a fabulous little beach resort town. The goofy part of this is day is that while we thought we spent the afternoon in the town of Maiori because that was the only sign we ever saw, we were really in the town of Minori!
The beautiful beach of Minori
occupies the whole small bay between the promontories that have some fortified towers right on the seashore line. This divides the town from Maiori and the opposite cape which is covered by the houses and noble palaces of the historic centre. In the middle of the beach there is a small quay which includes a landing point for hydrofoils and the landing of helicopters. Behind the beach, is the beautiful tree-lined promenade where we had our famous picnic lunch.

"We poked around the town"
and found a tiny little walkway street not wide enough for cars and come upon a open door way with only beads hanging down on it. We go inside slowly and find its a little lunch place where you order from the counter case. We negotiate a pizza Margherita, ½ rotisserie chicken, rosemary potatoes, and 4 cold local beers (Nastro Azzurro). We ordered it ‘portare’ (to go). Now we are all set and Jovanna announces she needs a toilette as we are standing at the counter. We asked the owner and the guy whistles upstairs, and then sends Jovanna up into their home to use their toilet. Now, I am getting kind of worried because it seems to be taking quite long, but she reappears and seems relieved. Not to worry, I am told. We take our bags of lunch items and head down to the sea walk quay area and have wonderful seaside lunch sitting on very scenic palm tree lined park benches.
