SEPT. 16 - PHOTOS UPDATED. When we planned the trip we double booked Sept 10, not knowing whether we would need the extra night in Agrigento or Siracusa. We chose to spend two nights in Agrigento and, in hindsight, we could have used the extra day to explore Siracusa, Catania and Taormina. Realizing that our remaining time in Sicily was short, we were up early today and on our the road. Instead of the leisurely drive ...
... hahaha (ok, maybe not); but it was magnificent!! So relaxing, spectacular water, Sylvie (and Sophie) showed off with some great dive jumps ;-) We spent our night on the boat, I was a bit concerned from being seasick, but I was a "hero" and I didn't throw up (sorry for the over-share)... On our way back to Modica, we stopped in COS winery, a bit of wine tasting is always nice :-) While Sylvie was picking Julia (her daughter) from the airport ...

... stupidly left these new gorgeous glasses and hope like hell through my entire hot walk back to the cafe that they're still there!
On my walk back to the cafe, which must be about 30min, I discover I have an italian car stalker! Go figure!! He beeps and waves at me, as if he knows me...clearly I don't know anyone here! But he drives twice round the round-about and then stops and speaks in rapid italian, to which I respond non parlane italiano, ...
EF offered two day trip options in Sicily, to Syracuse and to Mt. Etna. We had difficulty getting enough people for either trip, but eventually enough agreed to go to Syracuse for that trip to make. Those who weren't interested or weren't feeling up to going stayed behind in San Alessio Seculo with Lisa Dangler as chaperone. Those of us going on the trip, left after breakfast for the 115km bus drive from San Alessio Seculo to Syracuse.
