Today we stayed in town and headed up via the tram. We walked first to a park that was once the home to Florence Trevelyan who was invited to leave Britain after having an affair with the future King Edward VII. Beautiful views! From there we walked to the Main Street to have Gelato and look at the many shops. We then stopped off for lunch and ended up at a pizzarea. I had a very tasty calzone. We then walked over to the Greek Theater. Beautiful views of the sea and Mt. Etna. From there we headed back down to Mazzaro where we are staying, but before heading back to our house we decided to walk to Isola Bella which is an islet off the beach. Sicily's beaches are not beautiful white sand but whit rock. We walked over a small inlet to the island and it was a very painful experience! The rocks just killed our feet!!!
We then headed home for a little seiseta before dinner. Tonight we plan to actually go out for dinner. We had been walking over to Castelluccio for take out pizza. Very friendly owners. Tonight the plan is to walk down the stairs by our house to il Barcaiolo for seafood. Had many different dishes including the mussels shown below along with the Sicilian Cake also shown.
