Sunset Walk from Lacco Ameno to Casamicciola Terme
As I walked along the Lakco Ameno embankment, the sun was sinking lower and the time of day so beloved by photographers came, characterized by soft shadows and amazing colors.
The white cliffs of the summit of Monte Epomeo have acquired a reddish hue.
Finally, the sun's disk disappeared behind the cape of Monte Vico.
The lanterns on the embankment were lit up in a golden glow, although it was still very light.
The evening was warm and quiet and I decided to take a walk along the coast to Casamicciola Terme, connected by a well-equipped pedestrian droshky with several interesting objects.
In front of the yacht parking lot, a monument to the lost sailors was opened in 2004. On the board is inscribed A memoria di quanti operando in mare in pace ed in guerra non tornarono (In memory of those who did not return from the sea in war and peacetime).
Most of the coast is covered with huge boulders made of white tuff, but on this stretch there are a couple of beaches-Fundera (Spiaggia della Fundera) and the beach of Sister Angela ((Spiaggia di Suor Angela). Naturally, at the beginning of April, all the beach infrastructure is hidden until the season that opens in May.
All the way along the coast, I didn't meet anyone, except for a lone amateur enthusiastically filming the sunset with a professional video camera.
In the distance, Procida Island could be seen in crimson tones. It is now about 10 kilometers away, but at sunset it seems that the distance to it is much less. I noticed this optical effect 3 years ago in Capri.
Without too much haste, it took me about 20 minutes to walk from the Mushroom to the port of Casamicciola Terme, which had just left the ferry for Naples.
Casamicciola Terme is the third most populous town on the island, and the first in terms of the number of thermal springs. It was here that the first hydrotherapics appeared in Roman times.
The port of Casamicciola is the second most important on the island. The town is connected by Medmar ferries to Pozzuoli, but it can also be reached from Naples (port of Beverello) by the SNAV high-speed boat.
There is a boardwalk along the yacht parking lot, where there is a wooden track for running, marked with built-in flashlights at night.
Here you can also see a huge old anchor, for some reason painted white instead of the usual black.
Since it was evening and it was noticeably cooler, I decided to finish exploring the northern part of the island here, and sat down to wait for the bus under the monument on the Sea Square. At the stop there was a stand with a schedule, and even an electronic board (of course, not working), but the bus indicated in the schedule still did not appear. It was getting colder, and when I ignored the schedule and the next one, I began to think about a taxi (most of the people waiting did - the taxi stand is just a stone's throw away), but then a bus appeared on the seaside road.
