Sunset at my Beach in Sicily

One of the great things about my recent move to Sicily is the house in Rometta Marea where I live and it’s proximity to the sea. I can see the sea from my balcony when I am studying or enjoying the results of my increasingly Italian cooking skills. I fall asleep to the sound of the waves. I can go for a spontaneous swim whenever the weather is good. And yes, I have been swimming even now in October.

I don’t know how many meters I live from the sea, but I counted the exact number of steps from my home to the sea: it’s 122 steps. And that’s not until I reach the sand beach, but after 122 steps I am already standing in the water.

Today, it was also a beautiful spot to watch the sunset, looking towards Milazzo.

    Congratulations on the move. I am guessing the winter in Sicily will be quite different than the one in Vilnius.

  7. About where is that on the island – near which major town? I’m trying to tie it in to my (admittedly limited) mental map of Sicily from WW2.

    • In the very northeast, between Milazzo and Messina. Very far from the landing zones of “Operation Husky”, but I hope to go there and write about that a bit as well.

      • Ah yes – where everybody was so busy racing each other to capture Messina, most of the German forces, and a large number of Italians, managed to slip across the Straits to face the Allies in the mountains of Italy. While I am a fan of Gen. Patton, I have to knock him for going for the glory of the popular victory, rather than letting Monty have Messina and Patton closing off the crossing sites. (Yeah, I know, hindsight is always 20-20! :) )
