A friend I have never met in Canada left a 'tweet' on Twitter that the sea was rough in Positano. She had seen it on the towns webcam. So I got my wellies on and ran down to save the canoe before it got washed away! Thanks Lucy!
The sea is so rough that it had already reached the piazza:
Ours wasn't the only boat in danger of being washed away. Carlo and a few others moved a few boats further up the beach.
The promenade in the summer is a strip of beach shops and restaurants. In the winter it is a safe haven for boats:
It was too dark already to take photos of the waves rolling in and crashing into the pier, but if its still rough tomorrow I'll go down again.
