day off from visiting wineries today to explore the western coastline
of the island. We had a picnic on the beach at San Vito lo Capo, a
little seaside village noted for its beautiful ceramics. Afterwards we
drove up the amazingly steep limestone spur high above the sea to the
medieval walled town of Erice. The views of the surrounding country
side are breathtaking and on a clear day you can see the coast of
Tunisia to the south west and the Etna to the east. I'll post the
photos as soon as I can, absolutely stunning!
