Dreamy, Gleeful Day


Today was a day I’ve been looking forward to! From Trapani, on Sicily’s northwestern coast, we went to the Egadi Islands of Favignana and Levanzo for a full-day excursion. Early in the morning, being the curious culture and history-buffs that we are, my husband Joe and I took a walking tour through town and learned about the Florio family’s transformation of the island one hundred years ago into a tuna canning capital. After our in-town exploration, we stopped at this spot, pictured, for a swim off the boat. The water was clear and deliciously refreshing, with river-like currents. After a typical lunch featuring pasta with Trapani-style pesto aboard the boat, we headed to Levanzo for a lazy afternoon, followed by another dip in the clear sea. Wow, was the water beautiful! Jennifer, Fred, Nola, and I were gleeful.
