A WINDY DAY AT THE SEA


It was windy down at the sea this morning - the type of weather that Sicilians describe as "like winter" but which is still positively Saharan to me.  But then, I am British so come from a proud line of ancestors for whom sand in their sandwiches and at least a shower or four of rain a day are the stuff of which seaside holidays are made.  Once at the sea, I don't give up, come hell or, literally, high water!





Penne all'arrabbiata and a gelato rounded off the adventure:

Looks like a gorgeous day to me..and the food just adds to the delight! What's wrong with a little sand? It probably aids with the digestion!

Great day, the beach looks lovely and the sky so blue plus the gorgeous looking food - can't do much better!

Good day for sails! (And how are the sales?)

I assure you, Saretta, 35C in a breeze is "inverno" down here! Totally agree, Carmen. Oh, the sea was a lovely colour, cuby poet. Hi, WW. Yes, the people with boats had a great time. Some great sales around now, too, before everything closes in August.

If that is winter what is a hot day for a Sicilian!

Absolutely we had a picnic on the beach as the rain drops fell only last week!

Hi, jams. About 35 C with no breeze is deemed all right. Glad you are keeping the tradition alive, Liz.
