Amalfi Lemon Tour

For my Traveling Tuesday ~ I am headed back to the lemon groves on the Amalfi Coast.

This time we went to visit our friend Salvatore Aceto, his family has owned this lemon grove outside of the town of Amalfi for generations. It was a thrill to meet his 80+ year old father, who still works in the lemon groves.

This family is So special. They are working hard to promote the idea of organic farming and have the MoSt Fantastic lemons.

We were able to wander through the terraces of lemons, some trees are hundreds of years old.

After climbing the hills. . . no complaining ~ we weren't required to carry the heavy baskets of Lemons. We were treated to a pitcher of REAL lemonade and lemon cake . . . the views were spectacular.

Everywhere you looked, the lemons were waiting to be hand picked.

Lemons that were so sweet, you could eat the whole thing ~ peel and all.

I could have just stayed right here ~ But they were harvesting the very next week. That sounded to much like work to me.

Instead. . . we happily took the ferry back to Positano.

I am also joining Our World Tuesday
Y'all enjoy the ride~
