2010-04-30 Touring Little Cities in Italy

Toured to the cute little town of San Vito la Capo, driving through Belestrate on the way. San Vito la Capo was gorgeous... the beach was amazing. We walked around the town, stopped for some coffee, and headed back to our hotel for dinner. Then we played cards on the main floor of our hotel. Another picture perfect day...

2010-04-29 Terrasini, Sicily, Italy

Had a long drive to Terrasini, stopping at Erice on the way. Erice was an amazing town... we took a cable car up past the clouds into the town and walked around the castle. It was really amazing! We had a great day there, and then to Citte del Mare, an amazing hotel. We walked around the hotel for awhile then played cards! Fun!

2010-04-26 A Hike Up Mt. Etna

We went up to the top of Mt. Etna, Sicily's active volcano, today. We had a great time exploring there. We couldn't believe how cold it was -- we were freezing! It was a great time though. We stopped on the way back at a place where they made their own honey. Then home, clean up, take a walk down to Isabella, and then out to eat dinner. Back for Euchre!

2010-04-25 Touring Taormina

Today we went all over Taormina. Starting out early in the morning, we traveled to the ruins of the Greek amphitheater and to Castlemora, and then all over town. It was gorgeous and fun. The day went by quickly. We came back to the room, threw on fresh clothes and got cleaned up and then went out again for a fantastic fish dinner and to walk the streets of the cute little city.

Finished off with a game of Euchre -- girls won this time!
