Sometimes it's easy to forget that I live on an island that is actually a vacation destination for many people. Some sometimes it's nice to be a tourist closer to home. So a weekend back in May a friend and I spent the weekend on the other side of Sicily at San Vito Lo Capo. It was a four hour drive but lots of it was very pretty.
Example A. This is a turn off past Palermo as you head up the peninsula.
Of course I went for a run. I miss living by a sandy beach.
The nearby mountain in the morning.
Statue at the end of the jetty.
Freshly raked beach before it's covered in chairs and umbrellas and people trying to sell you stuff.
We also went for a hike in the Zingaro Nature Reserve not far away and I would say it was the highlight of the trip.
Secluded rocky beaches. We didn't realize there would be so many places to swim and lay out or we would have brought our suits.
Beautiful rock formations.
Huge cave that has been inhabited by humans for thousands of years apparently.
Really it was just a nice weekend away from responsibility.
