I thought I started documenting all the fun stuffs started on Saturday when we went shopping... but boyohboy was I wrong! We (the Hubster and myself) actually started the fun stuffs on Friday when he got off work early to take me into Aci Trezza for some adventures and yummy treats.
Aci Trezza is the leeeeettle fishing town that we live in... so why not explore a bit?
Oh and funny side-story: We accidentally partook in our first ever Sicilian funeral. OOPS!
We were walking into town and saw a big group of older, well dressed (all in black... should've been a clue) Sicilians walking slowly down the middle of the road. First thought was, hmm... wonder if there's a festival or a parade... I hate clowns! But as we got closer we realized they were being extremely quiet and all dressed in BLACK (and giving us some pretty NASTY looks...). Oh and then (BINGO!) we spotted the HEARSE that was leading them down the road... this was the funeral procession and we were HAPPILY following along in our colorful clothing, while chatting away and giggling.... FML.
We quickly turned off on a side street, not caring how long our detour was going to take.
But, that's how we found this...
Aaron in the small streets... with a boat :)
The street literally led RIGHT to the harbor where the boats were docked for winter.
Pretty... but now eerily a reminder of the Costa Cruise ship disaster... :\
Downtown Aci Trezza... our adorable fishing town.
I love love love it.
Oh and notice the lack of coat/jacket/sweater... WARM weather!!
Eating in the beautiful Eden Bar cafe...
Cappuccini and Dulce :) YUMMY!
Frgola tarts and mini Ricotta Canoli
Cappuccino, my favorite!
And of course, we demolished it.... hahaha
And then we returned home to make an amazing healthy home cooked meal.
Promise there is some chicken under all those veggies ;)
It was a fun little afternoon adventure, a wonderful start to the weekend, and a GREAT reminder of just how lucky I am to live here (and have such an amazing husband...) I am truly blessed to have this experience and to be living in such a great little town! We find the best things when we aren't even looking... :)
Come back tomorrow for more of the weekend FUN! :)
