August 4th

We intended to leave tomorrow for Messina, but after a bike ride to the town along the coast and exploring the town, we have decided to stay a few days. There is something about this place. Long white beaches with few people, crystal clear water that is pristine. Very friendly people. Great food – including lots of fruit and vegetables, and an interesting town. Very few tourists, even Italians – an unsung gem!

Spent the afternoon lazing on the beach with a good book, went into the ocean for a swim about 50 times to cool off – the water is very refreshing without being cold. John went for a long snorkel. Just love this place.
