We’ve crossed the lake! Here are a few photos of our first few days adventures in Francavilla al mare, Italy.
Gelato, who doesn’t love it? Even Summer Elizabeth is cone crazy.
Current fave= The Tennis Bar’s €1,50 cone topped with a swirly dallop of whipped cream!
How I spent yesterday’s breakfast: Sipping coffee made in the stunna Italian espresso pot reading the oven instructions brochure. Turns out the oven only works when the timer is set to prevent burnage. Who would’ve guessed? Not I.
Locks on the dock
Apparently lovers go fishing together and commemorate the experience by clasping a lock onto the dock, sometimes inscribed. See the coral below? It was clear water day.
Local fishing & pleasure boats. Just yesterday purchased a scaly fish directly from a fisherman who set up shop beneath a blue-striped umbrella at the corner of our house. Freshness doesn’t get much better than this! (Thank goodness for local fish, as our fridge isn’t currently keeping any temperature below 20C right now. Sea-Me-Skillet-Yum!)
Bike & walking paths right next to the beach…with café’s interspersed blocking the view. Husband on right looking fly toting the diaper bag. Husband, you rock!
Europe recycles. As if you didn’t know this already. Grin.
Speed bumps here freshly painted, as in yesterday painted. Pretty, eh?
Market going. This stand seemed busy, usually a good indicator. Turns out my entire
stash was weighed together with a joint combined price. Oranges and artichokes cost the same..Cool! Also turns out it was less expensive in the long run than competitor’s stands.
