Well, I lied. We didn't cruise around the Egadi Islands but we did cruise the Mediterranean. We set off from a pretty little fishing port called, Castellammare del Golfo (big name for a little town). We hugged the coast (mainland), cruising through the Zingaro Marine Nature Reserve, past the village of Scopello (on my itinerary for next visit to Sicily) and the faraglioni rocks to the very touristy town of San Vito Lo Capo.

... a lay in till 7am and I will pack and must check out at 10, then I will spend more time relaxing by the sea, having a read and researching how to spend my remaining weeks. I have a hostel booked in Palermo for the next two nights and then will see where the will takes me. I have woken feeling much more positive, and after chatting to friends and family yesterday on the web or phone, I definitely feel less alone. :-)
No more hitchhiking thou....

Leaving Agrigento this morning, we travelled along the coast to Marshall (the most western point of Sicily). Our first stop was at the fishing port of Sciacca. We actually arrived while the shops were still open and not closed for siesta. Sciacca is the ceramic/pottery capital of Sicily so I held out great hopes that I would find my door knobs.
