Too much of a good thing?! I think not! Another gorgeous day with no agenda. Here are some photos and a funny story or two…
There are more boats out today – the water is calm.
I wouldn’t object to sitting on the balcony all day, except I might miss something.
You don’t have to be able to read Italian to understand this sign.
This kitty isn’t worried about missing anything.
Hot fun in the sun!
We’ve made our way to the docks. A woman after my own heart – a cat at her feet and a kitten in her palm.
We’re walking north along the coast…
I wish I could do this at a moment’s notice.
The local wildlife.
We have arrived at Spiaggia di Fornillo.
The beach was quiet. I’m sure it’s a different scene in the summer!
These rocks were difficult to navigate barefoot.
We had a snack and drinks at Pupetto’s. This is grilled mozzarella on lemon leaves.
On the walk back to Spiaggia Grande, the water sparkled like diamonds. It was impossible to for me to photograph, but, I will long remember it.
Helping the baby up the hill.
Freaky cloud – reminded me of a trophozoite.
When shadows are better than the real thing…
I had to lean against the opposite wall so I wouldn’t fall over when I looked up!
I waved when this Fiat drove by. The passenger shot up out of the sun roof and waved back. Ha!
Donald Duck and the Italian flag. What did you expect?
I like use of the vertical space for pots!
These steps just needed a little TLC.
Look down – lots of stairs. Look out – big views.
Initially, the barking dog got my attention. But, the sign still baffles me.
“I’ll get to you when I get to you.”
I wish I had more than one step leading to my house!
The Three Sisters
A break, a snack and a drink…
Almost lost our rear ends getting this photo – had to negotiate a narrow road with speeding cars and scooters. We’re getting good at it!
We had dinner at Ristorante Max. We sat on the back patio – it was lovely. It was a bit fancier than I expected – and, with fancy comes inflated prices. That’s just the practical side of me coming out. Same fish – same ocean…
The couples on either side of us offered menu suggestions. A couple from Texas, celebrating their anniversary, offered us life advice as well. Some weird 80/20 rule. (You bring home 100% of the money. I’ll spend 80% of it and give you 20% of my time. Something like that. Some people are not my kind of people.) When they left some ”Valley” girls were seated at the table – we think they were sisters. In no time at all, they were quarreling and left in a hurry. Sheesh. Lighten up folks! You’re in beautiful Italy!
Tonight we pack – read ‘stuff still damp clothes and heavy bags of sea glass into backpacks’. Tomorrow, we travel inland – not an easy feat in il mezzogiorno when you don’t have a car. We had a lengthy discussion about renting a car, but, decided not to. We’ll see how that turns out.
