Capri circuit & the Blue Grotto

One day, we decided to go to Capri, making a circuit of the island to see its coves, the houses impossibly perched on the cliffs and gorgeous water below. Leaving the main port, Marina Grande:

 Even the statues wave as you pass:

The Blue Grotto, a scam of international proportions. For about $15, you get an uncomfortable berth sitting on the floor of a rowboat, and are pulled into the cavern on a chain, circulate with a lot of other boats blocking your view, then pulled out again, all in about 2 minutes total, with your rower angling for a tip from the minute you set foot in the boat. Bah!
