Visit - A Stormy Day in Sicily - 21/01/2017
Added on Saturday 21st January 2017 14:04:40
The weather today is somewhat inclement, with winds gusting to and the threat of rain increasing by the second. The forecast for tomorrow is the same, with the addition of thunderstorms and 59mm of rain.

When it's wet and inclement, we tend to hibernate and watch films, however, when the rain gets heavy, the noise it makes drowns out the sound of the film so book reading becomes our means of entertainment.

Anyway, as we're not far from the sea and the trees on the campsite were doing a merry dance, we hopped into the car and drove down to Seccagrande to watch the wild seas and take a few videos. The wind was so strong, gusting that we were nearly blown off our feet, but the exhilaration was palpable and made up for the bad weather. After driving along the sea front, still sand covered from last weekends storms, we drove the short distance to Ribera to find the local shopping facilities. Being Saturday afternoon meant that they were all shut, but we will try again tomorrow morning.

See today's gallery which is linked from the top of this page for a few more photographs. Unfortunately you'll have to wait for the videos until we get some decent wifi.
