A Friendly Hover.

helicopters Fornillo

A reader who has been following and commenting on my blog for some time now, having worked out who I am, recently introduced herself to my husband in Positano.

Dollyna, who knows the ins and outs of the town better than I do, has a home that overlooks our area.

Late this afternoon, being on her terrace cleaning up the leaves after the strong wind, she saw a helicopter rise up behind the Fornillo tower and instead of flying onwards to sweep around Positano, it made a beeline to what seemed to be our house, where it hovered!

Dollyna rushed to get her camera and get me some photos which she immediately emailed to me. I rang my husband, who surprised to find out that I knew about this noisy helicopter which had only just flown on, explained that it had brought building material to the Fornillo Beach where they were building a retaining wall.  I guess that it only wanted a closer peek into the Positano homes…

Thank you Dollyna for these great shots!

Max has some wonderful photos of the sunsets in Positano too.

Oh Scintilla, you got me all blushed ...
It was a pleasure to be able to show you a different angle, you know, the one pointing to your home.
And thank you girls, I tried to take the best shots under the circumstances, that chopper was F.A.S.T.
