Uncle Grant Comes to Sicily!

We were so excited when Grant called us a few weeks ago to announce that his passport had just arrived in the mail. He booked a ticket the following day and arrived on Valentine's Day to spend some time sharing life with us. We're so glad he did! Here are some of the highlights:
Our first big outing: Walking along the sea and conquering the Scala dei Turchi. This was our second visit to these breathtaking limestone cliffs that contrast so beautifully with the sweeping views of the Mediterranean.

Climbing, exploring and jumping are encouraged!

One of my favorite places ever to watch a sunset.

On to the archeological park and ruins of Agrigento. Lucas refuses to be left out of the fun!

Classic. I love these guys.

We took these pictures on the property of the little B&B where we stayed. The almond blossoms and late afternoon sun were just amazing.

Since I read about it last year I had been hoping that we would make it to the area around Agrigento which is well know for it's prolific almond blossoms in the late winter months. Reminds me of traveling far and wide to see plum and cherry blossoms in Japan in early spring. Simple beauty!

Day trip to Pineta Monti Rossi. Close to home, a fun and family friendly hike with great views of Etna!
