Sicilian summer

White walkers

Couldn't help but snap a pic of these sisters on their stroll through Taormina.

The same evening in Taormina. Fresh fruit and vedge on a market stall. One of the many things I loved about Sicily was the fresh produce they have everywhere and the way they put it to use in their cuisine. Simple but ever so tasty.
Looks like these stands have a public relations career, promoting Sicily.

They seemed to be selling these quite a lot in Taormina. I'm quite happy with how it came out seeing as it's behind glass and all :-)

The view from the funivia (cable lift) station in Taormina center, conveniently located on top of a hill, towards Letojanni.

Lido la pigna

This was where we spent most of our beach time. Beautiful cove and brilliant restaurant on the beach! Good times...

No more no comment?

Iuliana mentioned to me it might be a better idea to stick to the one post a day concept in stead of posting in bulk as I did yesterday.
As her comments are usually justified, I will re-post the pictures from yesterday one by one, so those of you that have already seen them; good for you, the others; just come back tomorrow and the day after and the day after that etc etc... ;-)
As to today's picture, this was taken on the day of our arrival in Taormina or a stroll to the neighboring village of Giardini Naxos. The first Greek settlement on the Island, way back when.
Lovely little seaside village well worth the visit.

The balcony

Yup, the view... :)

That time of year

We just got back from a BRILLIANT holiday in beautiful Sicily.
This was the view that welcomed us as we came out of the airport in Catania.
Yes, my jaw dropped slightly as well... :-)
Many pictures of this holiday are sure to follow.
