The perfect day.

This is how it started...

....ever seen anything more beautiful?
It happened a couple of days ago. My son decided to take a day off work to get some things he needed and he asked me to join him, and I gladly said yes. On the way back from Barcellona, 30 minutes away from here, we decided to stop at Portorosa to take some photos and visit the new Hilton hotel.

We took a long walk through the canals....

it was such a warm day

and finally a refreshing ice cream in one of the many restaurants of the locality.

Here in Sicily Easter officially gives the start to a long season of local festivities, usually religious, which last two or three days and end with fireworks. So from now on almost every weekend at around midnight the sky will become alive with coloured sparks above at least one of the towns which are visible from up here.

The Easter weekend passed very quickly. After a sizzling bbq....

and the sweets of the tradition...

it's time for spring cleaning, put away the winter clothes and reorganize the wardrobes. This is going to be my mission for this coming week and I can't say I'm looking forward to it, but if I don't do it who will??
