I didn't do any major sightseeing because when I got myself out, it was, as usual, a beautiful morning and, finally, the water was all churned up. I had actually begun to think maybe the Mediterranean Sea just didn't ever get much in the way of waves, or maybe all those rocks they've placed a short distance from the sea wall effectively stops the wave action, but this morning proved me wrong and I was so enthralled with it I had a really hard time pulling myself away from it. Took many, many pictures, but as I learned when I tried to catch waves on the camera while I was in California, it's very seldom you succeed - at least if you're me. So I'm not going to post all that many and this will be a relatively short post. So here is the Mediterranean Sea as active as I will probably see her. I made the first one full size because I actually caught it as it hit the wall and sprayed and I've noticed that Blogger no longer lets the viewer increase the photo to a really large size. Don't know if this will show up on your monitor or not.
And it's Tuesday around 9:15 p.m., I've just come back from an absolutely truly delicious meal at Caravaggio's (the pizza place) and this time I didn't have to bring home a plastic bottle of wine. He let me have a quarter liter of nice cold white. A little more about that in Tuesday's post.

- When I started my retirement travels - the first of which was my solo overseas trip to Italy in 2009 - I wanted a way to share it with family and friends as it happened. Hence, "My Travel Journal". However I realized I wouldn't always be on a trip and wondered what to do with the blog in between times. My daughter pointed out, wisely, that travels can also include trips to the kitchen to try a new recipe, trips to visit family, trips to my neighborhood Starbucks, or a fun day trip with a friend. You're welcome to join me on any of these journeys!
P.S. I've set up separate pages for each of my major trips (see tabs above).
I recently added an "Italian Word a Day" thingie which shows up at the bottom of every page. You see the word and can click to hear it pronounced. I've been enjoying it and I think my accent is improving as time goes by.
