MapHappy Birthday to the" son I left behind"
Hi guys and girls,What can I say.
We have been having the most superb weather and I have not stopped eating yet.
Today we docked in Naples.We hired a Driver and shared the fare with a Canadian couple.
Pompeii was first on our agenda. It was very fascinating and didn't realise what a large escavation it was. Spent an hour and a half there, you really needed four hours.
Next we drove the winding roads with Gino our "racing car driver."No road rules here and lots of honking of horns.
Sorrento was lovely and busy streets.Saw Rupert Murdocs ship anchored in the bay.
Had lunch at a beautiful town named Ravello. WOW what a view.
Saw a music museum which was very old and had glorious gardens.Also saw a beautiful church.This was a very special place.
Rick has now been to three churches.Two while there were services on. A converted catholic LOL
Gino our driver was fantastic and he got us back to the ship in one piece.

Rest day at sea tommorrow will be bathing by the pool in the Mediteranian sun.
(PS will wear DIVA shirt sometime tomorrow in support of my team.)
Have had trouble posting photos hopefully by tommorrow will be sorted out

Ciao Syl and Rick
