... there before...... the soles of our feet were raw by the end of the day!!

Lia had an absolute ball - she'd been counting down sleeps for months.... Nuka also had a blast but seemed to wane in the middle of the day, she's developed some sort of allergy and has a rash all over her face.... Being in the sun all day hasn't helped I'm afraid.....

It's our last night at Etna Mare, sadly, tomorrow we pack up and head South......

A side note: Sicilians are fascinated with french fries, they order them as a side with their pizza, on their pizza and inside pastry with a sausage.....patatine everywhere

We had an enjoyable evening getting to know some of the people. Off to bed now as we have to be up at 6.15am tomorrow. ...

... I was talking to a good friend of mine here who told me that she and a buddy were renting a car and driving through Sicily. She asked me if I wanted to come along. Even though I only had a couple days to spare, OF COURSE I SAID YES!! I flew to Catania where they picked me up and then we stayed in Taormina on an amazing beach named Nexos Beach.
