Day 190 – Noto

Clear blue skies, still air and 18 degrees. It felt more like late spring than mid winter in Europe. The boys and I were in shorts for the beach. Ben and Jack splashed in rock pools, and the local Sicilians were all wrapped up in their winter coats enjoying Epiphany, the last day of Christmas.

This town, Noto Lido, is full of beach holiday apartments. The flat we are renting is owned by a Sicilian family living and working near Lake Garda. The maternal mother looks after the flat for the family. Rubbish does not seem to be a problem here – there are six collections per week, organic, paper/cardboard, plastics, glass, metal and non-recyclables. It must be an expensive service, but it does the job.
